Abstract

Significant within-patient hemoglobin (Hb) level variability is well recognized in particularly hemodialysis patients. Several factors such as hospitalizations, intercurrent diseases and IV iron therapy are found to be related to Hb variability (Hb-var). In this observational study, we aimed to identify predictors and outcome of Hb-var in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients without hospitalization, intercurrent disease and IV iron therapy during the study period.
