BACKGROUND The CKD-EPI (Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration) creatinine-based equation for estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is more accurate than the MDRD (Modification of Diet in Renal Disease) Study equation. However, it has not been determined whether the improvement in risk categorization applies to all segments of the population. STUDY DESIGN Population-based cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS Adults (aged ≥18 years) who did not have kidney failure at… CONTINUE READING
