FGF23 Predicts Development of CKD Anemia

Turbulent serum fibroblast enlargement factor 23 (FGF23) are associated with an ennobled risk of anemia in patients with staunch kidney malady (CKD) but not on dialysis, agreeing to investigate findings justified nowed at the 54th European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Relocate Linking congress in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In a fully natural multivariable evaluation, patients in the 3rd and 4th quartiles of FGF23 had a suggestive 66% and 84% spread imperil of anemia be in a classed with patients in the 1st quartile.

“Our sentences suggest that serum FGF23 may be an individual predictor of anemia,” the conspirators concluded in their weigh abridge.

The work contingent had a have the persuasiveness age of 53.6 years and 1275 (61%) were men.  The median helping was 21 months.

Of the 1164 patients without anemia at baseline, anemia resulted in 295 (25.3%).
