Using this formula, a 70-year-old white male with an acceptable creatinine
of 1.3, would have an eGFR of 55.
becomes a sensitive marker of renal damage with galloping rise in serum only when more than 50% of renal mass has been lost.
It has been noted that serum creatinine
is not an adequate screening test for renal impairment in the elderly (65 years of age and over) due to their decreased muscle mass.
A retrospective review of ICU patients who underwent 24-h urine collection for creatinine
clearance measurement as part of routine ICU care that was subsequently repeated during a second separate ICU admission, an uncommon event, was conducted.
In this study, we aimed to construct 24-h profiles of creatinine
and cystatin C concentrations, as well as GFR estimations that are based on creatinine
and/or cystatin C.
When kidney function is compromised, creatinine
is not filtered leading to high blood creatinine
Conclusions: Similar to the serum creatinine
, the serum MIOX level provides information about kidney functions.
We aimed to identify the incidence of CKD according to both creatinine
and cystatin C.
The method developed was applied to determine urinary creatinine
, uric acid, and hypoxanthine levels in children with autism.
Material and Methods: A total of 119 type 2 diabetic subjects of either gender, aged 30-60 years were enrolled in the study with duration of diabetes less than 15 years and were divided into further sub groups on the basis of degree of albuminuria determined by spot urine albumin to creatinine
The Cockcroft-Gault equation is clearly inadequate, as it is standardized to creatinine
clearance and very inaccurate, so it should no longer be used.
