Short-term change in kidney function and risk of end-stage renal disease
Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, 07/06/2012
Turin TC et al. – A change in eGFR category accompanied by ≥25% decline is associated with increased end–stage renal disease (ESRD) risk. However, this elevated risk is captured by patient characteristics and eGFR at the last visit, suggesting that eGFR trajectories based on more than two serum creatinine measurements over a period longer than 1 year are required to determine ESRD risk and allow more reliable risk prediction.
