The Impact of Selecting a High Hemoglobin Target Level on Health-Related Quality of Life for Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease

.   .   

This systematic review aims to look at the health-related quality of life (HQOL) impact of target hemoglobin (Hb) levels. Results of this meta-analysis suggest that levels in excess of 120 g/L lead to small, but not meaningful improvements in HQOL. The authors conclude that, in balance with safety concerns, 90 to 120 g/L should be the preferred Hb target.
