Anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease CKD and contributes to cardiovascular alterations. Recent findings suggest that B-type natriuretic peptide BNP is a sensitive biomarker for left ventricular dysfunction, but relationship between hemoglobin and BNP in CKD patients is unclear. Hemoglobin, plasma BNP and serum creatinine levels were measured in 49 patients with CKD without heart failure, divided in two groups according to the hemoglobin status cut-off point 110 g-L. All patients underwent echocardiography in order to assess left ventricular LV morphology and function. The results showed that in the group of patients with hemoglobin levels under 110 g-L BNP levels were significantly elevated p
