Time to change the glomerular filtration rate estimating formula in primary care
European Journal of Internal Medicine , 05/09/2012
Korhonen PE et al. – The characteristics of the subjects commonly treated in primary care resemble more closely the population from which the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD–EPI) than the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) study equation was derived from. Thus, we suppose that in general practice, the CKD–EPI equation is more suitable for estimating renal function than the MDRD equation.
