Red blood cells are normocytic and normochromic in renal anemia. Causes of anemia in children with CRF are iron deficiency, recombinant human erythropoietin dose insufficiency, intestinal blood losses, acute and/or chronic inflammation, secondary hyperparathyroidism and nutritional deficiencies. Anemia has significant effects on the quality of life. Untreated anemia may lead to cardiac complications, increased risk of hospitalization and serious mortality. Ideal hemoglobin and hematocrit levels for children with CRF are 11-12 g/dL and 33-36% respectively. Clinical findings of anemia, such as decreased appetite, loss of energy, impaired cardiac functions and poor school performance, may improve with appopriate approach and therapy of renal anemia. Management of renal anemia is discussed in this article.]]> 2006-09-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 4 15 196 2006-09-01 191 Review <![CDATA[Mild Renal Dysfunction Among Turkish Adults: Prevalence and Its Association With Insulin Resistance]]> http://www.tndt.org/text.php3?id=622 2 ) existed in 50% of the study sample in both genders. Compared to the group with normal GFR, in category II, age-adjusted estimates of body mass index, homeostatic model assessment (HOMA) index, blood pressures, total, HDL-, LDL-cholesterol and serum proteins were all significantly elevated in both genders, as were apo B and log TSH in women alone. Stated variables were also significantly and inversely correlated with GFR. Whereas MS was not significantly associated with GFR categories, nor with reduced GFR when controlled for HOMA, HOMA Ðadjusted for MS as well as for sex, age and systolic BP- was significantly associated with likelihood for reduced GFR. Conclusions: Mild impairment of kidney function is very common in nondiabetic middle-aged and elderly adults, is associated mainly with IR and related cardiovascular risk factors, in the absence of MS-related atherogenic dyslipidemia. IR is important even in mild reduction in GFR, an action independent of central obesity-related components of MS.]]> 1,2, Mehmet Yazıcı, Gülay Hergenç, Hüseyin Uyarel, A.
