Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a significant complication of CKD. Some of the common causes of IDA in dialysis patients include:
Functional iron deficiency occurs when there is a failure to release iron rapidly enough to keep pace with the demands of the bone marrow for erythropoiesis, despite adequate total body iron stores. Functional iron deficiency is commonly associated with inflammation or infection.
Absolute iron deficiency occurs when the amount of stored iron is no longer adequate to meet the demands for erythropoiesis and total body
iron stores become depleted.
