About this information
NICE guidelines provide advice on the care and support that should be offered to people who use health and care services.
This information explains the advice about diagnosing and treating anaemia in people with chronic kidney disease (or CKD for short) that is set out in NICE guideline 8.
This is an update of advice on treating anaemia in people with chronic kidney disease that NICE produced in 2011.
Does this information apply to me?
Yes, if you are a child, young person or adult with chronic kidney disease.
It does not cover anaemia that is not caused by chronic kidney disease.
