1. The exclusion of patient race from glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimation resulted in systematic error that significantly underestimated GFR in African American individuals more so than non-African Americans. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Glomerular filtration rate (GFR), an integral component of establishing drug dosing, prognosis, and treatment of patients with kidney...
1. In this cross sectional study of older adults (>65 years) who had undergone gold-standard glomerular filtration rate (GFR) measurement with inulin excretion, different methods of estimating GFR demonstrated variation in bias and accuracy. 2. Despite the observed differences in bias and accuracy in this study population, differences were not...
