- Recommendation ID
- Iron levels in pre-dialysis patients:- A randomised controlled trial to assess haemoglobin (Hb) level as an outcome in pre-dialysis patients treated to serum ferritin levels lower than 200 micrograms/l versus those treated to 300–500 micrograms/l.
- Any explanatory notes
- Why this is important:- The ferritin level up to which pre-dialysis patients should be treated to achieve acceptable haemoglobin (Hb) (and at which erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are considered if Hb is still inadequate) is not well addressed in the evidence base.
