Managing iron deficiency can reduce the severity of anemia in patients with ND-CKD. Considerations for treating iron deficiency include improving iron stores to maintain acceptable levels of serum hemoglobin. The purpose of this activity is to bring forward evidence-based data related to abnormalities in iron metabolism and the prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in patients with ND-CKD. Program content includes a review of the physiology of iron metabolism and the pathophysiology of iron deficiency anemia. Expert faculty also explore current and emerging strategies for the management of iron deficiency anemia in patients with ND-CKD.
