Prevalence and predictors of the sub-target Hb level in children on dialysis
Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, 06/29/2012
van Stralen KJ et al. – Sub–target haemoglobin (Hb) levels remain common in children on dialysis, in spite of virtually all children being treated with erythropoiesis–stimulating agent; although the authors cannot exclude under–dosing. Optimal ferritin levels seemed to be slightly lower in children than those in adults. Other risk factors for sub–target Hb are dialysis modality and a high parathyroid hormone level.
