Impact of a single eGFR and eGFR-estimating equation on chronic kidney disease reclassification: a cohort study in primary care

Abstract:
Background Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is diagnosed using the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and the urinary albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR). The eGFR is calculated from serum creatinine levels using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) or Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equations. Aim To compare the performance of one versus two eGFR/ACR measurements, and the impact of equation choice, on CKD diagnosis and... Expand abstract
