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.

"A must-have for any GP locum.

I have used NASGP website since I started locuming three years ago. It caters for all my locum needs, and I found LocumDeck particularly useful for bookings and invoicing. The automatically-generated invoices and pension forms save me countless hours of admin time every month, and the recently introduced e-signed forms are brilliant.

The assistance I have received has always been quick and helpful. The forums and updates have also kept me in the loop with important issues which may affect my practice.

I cannot recommend this website enough. "
