Abstract

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a worldwide health problem. However, despite to new routes of dialysis, mortality and morbidity is high. One of the most common symptom of CKD is anemia, especially is more obvious in stages 3 and 4. In this review, we compared the effects of erythropoietin and anemia correction on kidney function (GFR) by investigating in various studies. Despite extensive studies in this category, still we do not sure about the effects of erythropoietin and anemia correction on the glomerular filtration rate.
Keywords: End-stage renal disease, Chronic kidney disease, Erythropoietin, Kidney transplantation
Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education: It seems that the treatment of anemia by recombinant human erythropoietin in chronic kidney disease, when it accompanied by control of metabolic complications, can improve anemia, however more human studies needs to find the effect of erythropoietin on kidney function.
