It is accepted that use of serum creatinine concentration alone as a marker of kidney function is inadequate; in particular, it has a poor sensitivity for detecting CKD. International recommendations favour the reporting of creatinine-based estimates of GFR using formulae which also take into account age, gender and… CONTINUE READING
