AIM The National Kidney Foundation recommends stratification of renal failure into moderate (Glomerular Filtration Rate: GFR = 30-60 mL/min/1.73 m2), severe (15-30) or terminal (<15) using the Cockcroft-Gault (CG) or the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equations. We studied the biases in these methods in an attempt to improve the standard CG… CONTINUE READING
