Abstract

Background: Anemia often develops among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is an important cause of cardiovascular disease among patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Objective: To evaluate the epidemiology and treatment of anemia among patients with CKD by undertaking an analysis of data from one Health Maintenance Organization. Methods: The CKD cohort was comprised of 1658 patients followed between 1 January 1994 and 1 December 1997 who had serum creatinine (SCr) levels above gender-specific norms. The prevalence of anemia and epoetin-α (recombinant human erythropoietin) use was determined, and the association with anemia and kidney function was assessed with multinomial logistic regression analysis. Results: 36% of patients with CKD had anemia, with at least two hematocrit (HCT) values (separated by ≥30 days) lower than the gender-specific norm (
