Recommendation ID
CG114/1
Question
Intravenous iron in children:- A prospective study of adequate duration of intravenous iron preparations in children with anaemia of chronic kidney disease (CKD), including safety, dosing and efficacy outcomes.
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Why this is important:- There is very little evidence relating to anaemia of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children. It is known that there is a range of iron levels for adults outside which adverse outcomes become more likely, and this helps guide monitoring and treatment adjustment in anaemia correction and maintenance. In children, there is likely to be much greater variation between individuals.
