Recommendation ID
Haemoglobin levels in older people:- An observational study of haemoglobin (Hb) levels and adverse outcomes in older people.
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Why this is important:- Evidence suggests that anaemia due to reduced erythropoiesis occurs even in early stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). This may be undetected and is associated with adverse outcomes in older people. A better understanding of the haemoglobin (Hb) levels associated with adverse outcomes in older people would enable improved detection of anaemia of CKD and reduction of risk.
