Ckd-epi creatinine formula
Ckd-epi creatinine formula - a formula to estimate glomerular filtration rate that takes into account sex, age, race, and serum creatinine (scr). Egfr(ml/min/1.73 m2)=141 x min(scr/k, 1)^a x max(scr/k, 1)^-1.209 x 0.993^age x 1.018 [if female] x 1.159 [if black] where: scr is in mg/dl; k=0.7 for female and 0.9 for male; a=-0.329 for female and -0.411 for male.
