Chronic kidney disease: managing anaemia [NG8]

Measuring the use of this guidance

Recommendation: 1.3.11

The correction to normal levels of Hb with ESAs is not usually recommended in people with anaemia of CKD. - Typically maintain[8] the aspirational Hb range between 100 and 120 g/litre for adults, young people and children aged 2 years and older, and between 95 and 115 g/litre for children younger than 2 years of age, reflecting the lower normal range in that age group. - To keep the Hb level within the aspirational range, do not wait until Hb levels are outside the aspirational range before adjusting treatment (for example, take action when Hb levels are within 5 g/litre of the range's limits). [2011, amended 2015]
