Abstract
The objective of study is to analyze the cost of illness in the management of anemia among hemodialysis patients. Prospective observational study for a period of 8 months was conducted after the approval of the protocol by the Ethics Committee. The patients of both gender aged between 18-75 years were enrolled in the management of anemia with erythropoietin (EPO). The data related to the cost and the number of units for EPO, iron and vitamin supplements were recorded and computed on weekly basis. Hemoglobin levels were recorded every month. The number of subjects included in the study was 62 out of 96 patients. On an average, each subject was administered 30.68 of EPO doses equivalent to 127601.35 IU. The iron supplements and vitamins constituted 17.64 doses and 36.55 doses respectively. The response of above-mentioned treatment reflected raise in 8.68 g/dl hemoglobin levels per patient per 8 months. The cost of EPO for doses administered was 124739.92 INR (2074.68 USD), iron supplements 6350.4 INR (105.62USD), vitamin supplements 1780.22 INR (29.61USD). In addition, the laboratory charges for the measurement of hemoglobin levels were 370 INR (6.15 USD) per patient per 8 months. Study reveals 64.58% of patients were economically sound to undergo the treatment with EPO. Eighteen patients were covered by Employees? State Insurance and 2 patients supported by their employers on reimbursement basis and the remaining 40 patients borne the expenses by themselves. The study revealed that the average cost in the management of anemia among hemodialysis per patient per 8 months was 133240.54 INR (2216.06 USD).
