Abstract

Chronic kidney failure is a chronic disease that can disrupt the systems in the body. One of the functions of the kidneys is to form the hormone erythropoetin which plays a role in the formation of erythrocytes. The disruption of erythrocyte formation results in decreased hemoglobin levels. An examination of hemoglobin levels for chronic renal failure patients, both hospitalized and re-control at the Bangkat Hospital using Automatic Hematology Analizer, was analyzed on 27 patients, the results obtained were 22 people (81%) decreased hemoglobin levels and 5 people (19%) hemoglobin levels within normal limits. The decrease in hemoglobin levels is caused by malfunctioning of the kidneys to form the hormone etripoetin, which plays a role in the formation of erythrocytes, whereas in normal patients the hemoglobin level is likely to receive blood transfusions.
