Anemia is associated with poor outcomes in chronic kidney disease patients.
For patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), anemia is associated with reduced quality of life and increased cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, hospitalizations, and mortality. It affects a large percentage of CKD patients.
Treating anemia in chronic kidney disease.
The treatment of anemia changed with the advent of the use of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESA). Our Dallas Nephrology Associates kidney doctors will rule out other underlying treatable conditions, such as iron or vitamin deficiencies.
Ultimately, anemia in chronic kidney disease patients requires highly skilled and individualized care from experienced nephrologists like those at Dallas Nephrology Associates.
