This guidance updates and replaces NICE clinical guideline 39 (published September 2006).
The advice in the NICE clinical guideline covers:
- detecting and diagnosing anaemia of chronic kidney disease
- managing anaemia of chronic kidney disease, and other health problems or treatments that may affect it.
It does not specifically look at:
- anaemia in people with chronic kidney disease, where the anaemia may be caused by other problems.
This is an update of advice on anaemia of chronic kidney disease that NICE produced in 2006.
