Ubiquitousness of Anaemia in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease in Tertiary Care Hospital: A Prospective Observational Study
Keywords:Chronic kidney disease, Glomerular filtration rate, Anaemia.
The aim of the study was to monitor the prevalence of anaemia in chronic kidney disease in a tertiary care hospital. A prospective, observational, cross-sectional study was conducted on patients who visited to tertiary care hospital between November 2019 to April 2020, with a sample size of 150. A total of 150 pts were included in the study, of those 22% (33 pts) have no other comorbidities, 23.3% (35 pts) also have hypertension alone and 35.3% (53 pts) have diabetes and 19.3% (29 pts) have both diabetes and hypertension. Of these 65.3% (98 pts) have glomerular filtration rate (GFR) less than 15 ml/min, 14% (21 pts) have GFR between 15-29 ml/min, 9.3% (14 pts) have GFR between 30-59 ml/min, 6% (9 pts) have GFR in between 60-80 ml/min and 5.3% (8 pts) have GFR greater than 90 ml/min. In the present study, 81 pts (54%) were suffering from anaemia. This study concludes that anaemia is more prevalent in chronic kidney disease conditions and glomerular filtration rate is the key factor to assess the disease progression and estimate the relation between the developments of anaemia in kidney failure condition, as the kidney function gets decreased, the risk for development of anaemia gets increased.
