Glomerular filtration rate

Jump to: navigation, search

Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is a test used to check how well the kidneys are working. Specifically, it estimates how much blood passes through the glomeruli each minute.

Estimated GFR (eGFR) is a key method for identifying people with chronic kidney disease (CKD). eGFR calculated using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) Study equation or the CKD-EPI equation provides a more clinically useful measure of kidney function than serum* creatinine alone. This equation takes into account several factors that impact creatinine production, including age, gender, and race. Read about using the MDRD Study or CKD-EPI equations, reducing rounding errors when estimating GFR, and when not to use creatinine-based equations to estimate GFR.
