8,16) The most recent edition of the British National Formulary (BNF) has replaced reference to creatinine clearance with eGFR.
Urinary GGT levels were measured by GTSL method and urinary creatinine levels were measured using the JAFFE reaction and no adjustments were done for daily creatinine variations.
One of the widely accepted ways to determine creatinine is the Jaffe method, which utilizes picric acid for the Jaffe Reaction to test for creatinine [9].
The earliest detectable abnormality of nephropathy is microalbuminuria followed by decrease in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and increase in serum creatinine concentrations.
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 ratio (uACR).
The Cockcroft-Gault equation is clearly inadequate, as it is standardized to creatinine clearance and very inaccurate, so it should no longer be used.
What factor(s) account for the falsely decreased creatinine concentration in this patient?
Serum creatinine was estimated by modified Jaffe's kinetic reaction with initial rate colorimetry and single reagent density by using picric acid.
The previous studies have suggested that serum cystatin C concentration is a better indicator of GFR than the serum creatinine concentration in patients with spine injury, liver cirrhosis, diabetes, mild-to-moderate impaired kidney function and in elderly patients.
3) Sex, muscle mass, race, and age can influence creatinine levels, while factors unrelated to recent food intake--including sex, age, and body mass index--can affect lipid levels.
Previously, cutting-edge techniques for protecting kidneys from ice formation resulted in levels of creatinine in the blood of animals receiving transplants of protected kidneys that were at the borderline of acceptable function, and only 75% of the kidneys fully survived the procedure.
The biochemical parameters including HbA1c, lipid profile, urea, uric acid, creatinine and bilirubin level were measured by chemistry analyzer.
