INTRODUCTION Despite increasing use in clinical practice, an estimated glomerular filtration rate value (eGFR) of <60 ml/min/1.73 m2 does not necessarily indicate the existence of chronic renal insufficiency (CRI) and this may lead to an over-estimate of CRI particularly in persons seventy years or older. AIM To find a screening test able to differentiate CRI from the decrease in GFR normally associated with the renal ageing process. METHODS Medical information of 487 individuals of both… CONTINUE READING
