  • Serum creatinine is the marker most widely used to predict glomerular filtration rate (GFR). In childhood, there is age and muscle mass dependency of serum creatinine, and assessing a normal GFR accurately even with the use of body length/creatinine ratios remains difficult (1)(2). Recently, cystatin C (Cys-C), a 13-kDa protein, was found to correlate closely with GFR in adults (3)(4)(5). β2-Microglobulin (β2-MG) serum concentrations also correlate with GFR, and have been shown to be age… CONTINUE READING
