High creatinine excretion ratio predicts a good outcome in peritoneal dialysis patients.

Abstract

The creatinine excretion (CrEx) ratio was first described as a method for detecting noncompliance in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. However, a high CrEx ratio is not specific for noncompliance and may also be found in compliant patients with a relatively greater lean body mass (LBM).
