Results: The median age of patients was 28 years (44% males). The eGFR was >90 ml/min/1.73 m 2 in all patients, with a median value of 142.3 ml...

Methods: Renal function was measured 1 and then 14 years postpartum by para-aminohippurate and inulin clearances in 20 women with a history of severe preeclampsia and 8 parous controls. Results: The difference in glomerular filtration rate 1 year postpartum between women...

Methods: We studied predialysis mortality and slopes of estimated glomerular filtration rate, eGFR) associated with serum potassium in 1,227...

The trimethoprim component, even at recommended doses, inhibits tubular creatinine secretion, leading to a rapid but ultimately...

... or conducted stratified analysis by age. It does appear that elderly patients with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) 45–59 ml/min/1.73 m 2 are at higher risk for AKI compared with their counterparts with eGFR >60 ml/min/1.73 m 2 . This is a similar relationship to that seen in younger patients...

...James Goya Heaf; Leif Spange Mortensen Introduction: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a progressive disease leading to loss of glomerular filtration rate (ΔGFR, measured in ml/min/1.73 m 2 /year). ΔGFR is usually assumed to be constant, but the hyperfiltration theory suggests that it accelerates...

... of inhibitors of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. The routine measurement of the urinary protein/albumin:creatinine ratio (PCR/ACR) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) gives rise to the opportunity to index proteinuria for renal function (i.e. a PCR:eGFR or ACR:eGFR ratio). Since both PCR...
