Correlation between Anaemia and Hepcidin-25 and Interleukin 6 Levels in Early Stage and Advanced Chronic Renal Disease

This manuscript examines the correlation between anaemia and hepcidin-25, interleukin (IL 6), C-reactive protein (CRP), Hs CRP, iron, other iron parameters in chronic renal disease. In patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), there are alternative tests available that may provide a diagnosis of iron deficiency but they are not widely used in practice.


 Background: Anemia is very commonly seen complication in the patients with chronic renal disease (CRD). This is thought to result from decreased renal excretion of the hepcidin and chronic inflammatory process. Our study aimed to investigate the correlation between hemoglobin (Hb) and hepcidin levels in all stages starting from stage 2 CRD.

Ischaemic Colitis during Haemodialysis



Ischaemic colitis results from a chronic or acute drop in the blood supply to the bowel and accounts for 6%–18% of the causes of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Diabetes mellitus, hypotension, advanced age, aortic surgery and peripheral vascular disease have also been suggested to be predisposing factors for ischaemic colitis. In this report, we present a case of ischaemic colitis in haemodialysis with a good response to conservative treatment.
