Estimating equations for glomerular filtration rate in children: laboratory considerations.


A recent report by Schwartz and coworkers has described improved equations for estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in children (1 ). The equations were developed with data collected from 349 children 1–16 years of age with GFRs of approximately 20 –90 mL min 1 (1.73 m) 1 who were enrolled in the Chronic Kidney Disease in Children (CKiD) study. The… (More)
