In brief: Multiple tests

Every patient on dialysis in us receives monthly blood tests-mandated by cms.
They will get complete blood count and iron studies to check for anemia, few tests to measure dialysis adequacy, calcium phosphorus levels, albumin, parathyroid hormone level, hepatitis b tests. In addition, tests may be ordered depending on the patient condition.All these lab results are reviewed by nephrologist monthly.
