Webcast: Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment of IDA in NDD-CKD

Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a common condition in patients with non–dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease (NDD-CKD) that can affect quality of life and lead to suboptimal outcomes. Despite the impacts of IDA in NDD-CKD patients, its screening, diagnosis, and treatment remains challenging. Recent trials and evidence has shown that i.v. iron supplementation for the treatment of IDA might be beneficial in this setting, and during this webcast,, experts will discuss important advances and considerations about the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of IDA in patients with NDD-CKD.
