Nice | Anaemia in CKD

Nice | Anaemia in CKD

chronic kidney diseaseThis is an updated guideline from Nice on anaemia in chronic kidney disease. The main changes relevant for us are the tests which should be used to diagnose it and the targets for treatment.

This guideline seems to be for any patient with CKD and GFR less than 60. I am not covering children, patients on erythropoietic stimulating agent (ESA) therapy or patients on dialysis in this summary as their care is generally managed in hospital, but they are covered in the guideline.

If the GFR is over 60, anaemia is unlikely to be due to CKD.

"I was delighted to have been invited to join GP locum chambers. I enjoy great peer support from my colleagues via our monthly meetings, which has been helpful to me discussing some specific things that arise with GP locum working.

I have found LocumDeck really straightforward to use and immensely helpful; in particular invoicing and the pension forms A and B has cut down my admin time dramatically, which I’m pleased about. The support from NASGP's membership support manager, is excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.

NASGP membership brings with it a host of benefits, including a range of excellent materials to draw on for support and learning. I would recommend NASGP chambers to anyone working or thinking of working as a GP locum."
