ANAEMIA FIND-CKD: intravenous iron in predialysis CKD
Nat Rev Nephrol
A new study has advanced our understanding of iron management in chronic kidney disease (CKD) by comparing oral iron to high-dose and low-dose intravenous ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) in patients with predialysis CKD. Intravenous FCM treatment to achieve a higher serum ferritin target improved patient haemoglobin levels and reduced initiation of other anaemia treatments.
