The most important clinical renal function to monitor with aging is the glomerular filtration rate (creatinine clearance). Most decisions on drug dosage can be based on this information alone as other (tubular) functions of the kidney decrease at rates paralleling the decrease in glomerular filtration rate. As individuals age, mean creatinine clearances fall at a rate approximating 1% per year and there is an increasing variance in creatinine clearances making it increasingly important to… CONTINUE READING
