Serum creatinine was measured at our institute's automatic laboratory using the Jaffe reaction principle.
Although this equation is a helpful tool, certainly better than use of serum creatinine alone, the Cockcroft-Gault equation yields only an estimate of creatinine clearance and not GFR.
The new meta-analysis confirmed that a doubling of serum creatinine concentration over the course of 2 years is a valid endpoint for CKD progression.
Serum creatinine, of course, is a measure of glomerular filtration (albeit an imperfect one) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) varies in normal individuals.

Healthcare practioners should be aware of the potential complications of PICCs and limit the use of PICCs to patients with normal serum creatinine and GFR unless PICC placement is approved by a nephrologist.
Typically, acute elevations in serum creatinine are interpreted as renal dysfunction, particularly in concert with oliguria, and suggest a reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR).
Assess serum creatinine in duplicate before initiating therapy to establish a reliable pretreatment baseline, due to variations in measurements.
The observation that serum creatinine, proteinuria, and urine sediment are poor predictors of renal pathology led Roberti and associates to conduct a prospective, double-blind study comparing the urinalysis findings with renal biopsy results in 15 patients with active SLE.
