Case Study
The article presents information on a case study which ascertained whether the combination of estimated glomerular filtration rate (EGFR) and urine albumin excretion can correctly predict cardiovascular death. About 9709 people in the mean age of 62 were included in the study. Multivariate analysis showed a strong trend for higher risk for CVD at lower EGFR in people with microalbuminuria.

    This brief review examines the history of the use of creatinine as a measure of renal function. While there are more accurate markers of glomerular filtration, creatinine was chosen for convenience. Since the relationship of creatinine to glomerular filtration depends upon a tenuous balance of...

    Glomerular hyperfiltration may be a risk factor for late nephropathy. It has been shown that considerable protein restriction can lower glomerular filtration rate (GFR). To elucidate the effect of moderate protein limitation in type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetics with normoalbuminuria, eight...

    OBJECTIVE -- We previously described a cross-sectional association between serum uric acid and reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in nonproteinuric patients with type 1 diabetes. Here, we prospectively investigated whether baseline uric acid impacts the risk of early progressive renal...
