Association between common iron store markers and hemoglobin in children with chronic kidney disease
Pediatric Nephrology, 07/31/2012
Atkinson MA et al. – The level of GFR was significantly associated with hemoglobin (HGB). Higher serum ferritin was associated with lower HGB in this cohort. Low serum iron in the context of normal/increased ferritin and low HGB may be a useful indicator of iron–restricted erythropoiesis.
