All have shown improvements in quality of life (QOL). Only one has shown a risk. Intuitively, normalization should benefit because in all other forms of hormone deficiency, replacement is given to fully correct the deficiency. The definition of normal Hb differs for patients with pCKD and those on peritoneal dialysis from that of hemodialysis patients. The later have recurrent changes in weight between dialysis sessions. 5 g lower than in the other two groups. not allowed to develop, could the severity of LVH in patients with pCKD be reduced?
Schidler  studied 50 patients with mild degree of CKD and found that such patients exhibited negative psychological reactions to their illness, associated with lower QOL and higher depression scores. The Normal Hematocrit Cardiac Trial did report significant improvements in QOL parameters in the patients in the normal Hb group at the time the study was halted . The observation by Valderrabano  that improvement in the sickness impact profile (SIP) and Karnofsky scores correlated with Hct over the full range of Hcts in 1,013 Spanish hemodialysis patients led to a prospective 6-month study (Spanish Quality of Life Study) to evaluate functional status and QOL resulting from a deliberate increase in Hct .
