For alterations in serum creatinine to reflect changes in GFR, urine creatinine excretion must remain constant. Although serum creatinine is often used to monitor chronic changes in allograft GFR, creatinine excretion has not been systematically investigated in renal transplant recipients. In the present study, creatinine excretion was examined in 100 patients who survived at least 12 months with functioning renal allografts. Overall, there was a progressive decline in creatinine excretion from… CONTINUE READING
