Guidelines and Recommendations

Fatigue and weakness, caused by anemia, can lead to decreased quality of life for ESRD patients.

Clinical Guidelines

Anemia is a condition where the body lacks enough red bloods cells leading to weakness, fatigue, and sometimes difficulty breathing.  This condition can impact a patient's quality of life, but is treatable with proper management.  The key measure of red blood cells in the body is called hemoglobin (Hgb).
