In patients with chronic kidney disease, norm chromic normocytic anaemia mainly develops from decreased renal synthesis of erythropoietin. The anaemia becomes more severe as the Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) progressively decreases. No reticulocyte response occurs, red blood cell survival is decreased and there is an associated increased bleeding tendency due to uraemia-induced platelet dysfunction. Untreated anaemia of CKD is strongly associated with cardiovascular and renal complications,

[15] Methods: In the present study, 50 patients of CKD admitted at GG Hospital, a tertiary care hospital, Jamnagar during period of 1 year, were included. Results: In the present study, 58% patients have moderate, 22% have mild and 20% have severe form of anaemia Conclusion: As anaemia is common in developing country and CKD is affecting haemopoietic system, 78% patient of study having anaemia.
