But the incidence of iron deficiency anemia in chronic kidney disease (CKD) has not been well established in Kaveri Delta Region, Tamilnadu, India. Hence, the present study has been undertaken to evaluate the prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in chronic kidney disease patients of Kaveri Delta Region, Tamilnadu, India.

Materials and Methods: The present study enrolled 221 chronic kidney disease patients from a private nephrology outpatient clinic, Tiruchirappalli. All biochemical tests were done including serum ferritin. Patients were categorized into two groups based on ferritin levels.

Results: Out of these patients, 87 belonged to iron deficiency anemia patients. Group 1 patients (Total Number of Patients: 87 Male: 29 Female: 58) showing significantly lower serum ferritin levels (15.04±12.48) than group 2 patients (88.98±47.39) (P<0.0001). Within group 1, females had lower ferritin levels (12.98±8.84) than males (17.11±10.78) in the age group of 31-40 years (P <0.0001).
