Comparison of MDRD, CKD-EPI, and Cockcroft-Gault equation in relation to measured glomerular filtration rate among a large cohort with diabetes.

Abstract

AIMS To analyze the performance of Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD), Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI), Cockcroft-Gault (CG), and CG calculated with ideal bodyweight (CG-IBW) equations to estimate glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) based on serum creatinine in a large diabetic population. METHODS 24,516 adults with… (More)
