ASN:AMERICAN SOCIETY OF NEPHROLOGY KIDNEY WEEK 2016   15 Nov 2016   
Background: Hemoglobin variability (Hb-var) has been associated with increased mortality both in non-dialysis dependent (NDD)-CKD and ESRD patients, however, the impact of Hb-var in late-stage NDD-CKD on outcomes after dialysis initiation remains ...
