Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

Ferric carboxy maltose is at least as effective as iron sucrose in increasing hemoglobin levels in patients with iron deficiency anemia who have CKD. Ferric carboxy maltose and iron sucrose are both more effective than oral iron supplementation in increasing hemoglobin levels (SOR: C, RCTs of disease-oriented outcomes).
