ABSTRACT

Background: Anemia is one of the many complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, studies on the prevalence of anemia among CKD patients in Saudi Arabia are very limited. Thus, the present study is aimed to estimate the prevalence and severity of anemia among patients with chronic kidney disease in Prince Mutaib Hospital, Al-Jouf, Saudi Arabia. Methodology: A retrospective study was conducted employing patients' records of individuals with chronic kidney disease following up at Prince Mutaib Hospital during the period from 1st January 2014 to 31st December 2016. Results: The mean age of the total sample (182 patients) incorporated in the study was 52.9 17.03 years with 53.3% of patients being male and 46.7% female. About 92.9 % of the study group was in stage V of the severity of the glomerular filtration rate. All study samples underwent hemodialysis. The primary etiology of chronic renal failure was found to be hypertensive disease who had moderate anemia and severe anemia (28.7% and 6.1%), respectively. Conclusion: There is a strong relationship between anemia and hemodialysis, especially among patients with moderate anemia in the studied population, and the majority of patients received iron with folic acid.
