Expert Answer :
Since the anemia is normocytic, it may be necessary to give her Erythropoietin which is already being done. Rule out an underlying iron deficiency. Get her serum iron studies done. Since she has chronic kidney disease, she will need to be under care of nephrologist. You will have to talk to mother about dialysis and renal transplant that will be needed in the future.
