The article presents information about chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its classification. An index of kidney function, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is used for the classification of CKD stages. For the diagnosis of various stages of CKD, each stage is represented by eGFR, such as 15, 30, 60 and 90 mL/min/1.73 m².

    The effects of early glycosilation products (Amadori Products, AP) were investigated in male Munich-Wistar rats to establish whether AP play a role in the pathogenesis of glomerular hyperfiltration of early diabetic nephropathy. To mimic such a condition, normal rats were transfused with blood...
