We reexamined the relationship between creatinine clearance (Ccr) and body habitus in 212 girls and 356 boys, including 181 boys and 69 girls between 13 and 21 years of age. The use of formula Ccr = k L/Pcr, where k = 0.55 for the calculation of GFR, resulted in a significant underestimation of GFR in adolescent boys but was suitable for girls. In 51 adolescent boys the equation Ccr = 0.7 L/Pcr resulted in an accurate estimate of GFR. Regression analysis in 133 boys aged 3 to 21 years showed… CONTINUE READING
