Kidney failure risk equation bests eGFR for predicting ESKD

(HealthDay)—The four-variable Kidney Failure Risk Equation (KFRE) better predicts the two-year risk for end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) than estimated glomerular filtration (eGFR) alone, according to a study published online ...

Alternative to using race in kidney function test found

Researchers have identified an approach to remove race from equations used to estimate a person's kidney function. These equations have been criticized for potentially perpetuating racial health disparities. The findings, ...

Race-free equations for glomerular filtration rate compared

(HealthDay)—The chronic kidney disease (CKD) Epidemiology Consortium estimated glomerular filtration rate cystatin C (eGFRcys), the only guideline-recommended equation that does not require race, results in the smallest ...
