OBJECTIVES We investigated whether the presence of anemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes in the general population. BACKGROUND Chronic anemia is a risk factor for CVD outcomes in patients with kidney disease and in patients with heart failure, but has not been evaluated as a risk factor in the general population. METHODS The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study was used to evaluate the relationship of anemia, defined by hemoglobin <13 g/dl in men and… CONTINUE READING
