Absolute Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) is one of the complications in the End State Renal Disease (ESRD) patients undergoing
maintenance hemodalysis, with an incidence of 76.4%. If this condition is not properly addressed, it can lead to impaired cardiac function
and increased mortality. The incidence of this case is between 30−45%. The determination of the iron status in ESRD patients wqs set
by the Perhimpunan Nefrologi Indonesia 2011 using serum ferritin and transferrin saturation, but they do not provide a meaningful
change in the value of the initial state of the iron deficiency. This condition should be examined with other parameters combination as
well as those influenced by diurnal variation and infection-inflammation condition. Reticulocyte hemoglobin (Ret-He) parameter can
be used as a marker of bone marrow iron availability because these reticulocytes are young erythrocytes released from the bone marrow
into the circulation. These conditions were circulated only within a short time about 1-2 days before becoming mature erythrocytes. The
aim of this study was to determine the Ret-He level diferentiation between absolute IDA and non absolute IDA states in ESRD patients
whom underwent maintenance hemodialysis. This research was conducted in the Laboratory of Clinical Pathology-RSHS-Bandung from
September 2012 to June 2013. The study design was cross-sectional. All subjects were ESRD patients undergoing hemodialysis maintenance
for at least three (3) months and consisted of absolute IDA and non-absolute IDA based on the results of the ferritin and transferrin
saturation calculations according to the criteria of Pernefri 2011 Reticulocyte hemoglobin levels were checked using a fluorescence
flowcitometry principle in the automated hematology analyzer. In this study it was found that the Ret-He mean in the absolute IDA was
26.1 pg/cell and 35.9 pg/cell in non absolute IDA. Statistical analysis was performed using Independent T-test. A total of 61 undergoing
maintenance hemodialysis subjects participating in this study comprised patients with absolute IDA and non-absolute IDA who met the
inclusion and exclusion criteria. It can be concluded that the Ret-He level in statistical analysis showed absolute IDA which was meaningful
lower than nonabsolute IDA in ESRD patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (p<0.001).
