Example text

Conclusions The task I was set was to provide a counter-argument to normalization of hemoglobin in renal failure patients. The case I have mounted draws on scientific data obtained from a number of the ‘normalization of hemoglobin’ studies in dialysis patients. The arguments include the fact that there is no evidence that a higher hemoglobin is of significant benefit, the epoetin dose requirements are greater, the cost is significantly greater, the requirements for iron supplementation are greater, there is an increased risk of vascular access clotting, there is less efficient dialyzer clearance of solute, there is an increased risk of clotting in the dialyzer, heparin requirements may increase, there is an exponential increase in whole blood viscosity, and some hemodialysis patients may develop significant hemoglobin overshoot partly due to fluid removal across dialysis.

Of note, the dropout rate in those with pCKD was low. The Canadian Multicenter Trial has also reported on QOL outcomes. At 24 and 48 weeks into the study, improvements in the Kidney Disease Questionnaire and the SF-36 subscales have been noted without a change in the Health Utilities Index. Importantly, normalization had least effect in those with LVH and greatest impact in those with LV dilatation. Changes in depression, fatigue and relationships were the subscales showing the most effect from normalization.
