CANAL, Cristina et al. Tables for estimating the glomerular filtration rate using the new CKD-EPI equation from serum creatinine concentration. Nefrología (Madr.) [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.2, pp.223-229. ISSN 1989-2284.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its complications have become a major healthcare problem, both due to the resources that are required in the final stages of the disease and to secondary complications. As such, its early diagnosis is considered to be very important nowadays. The recently published 2013 KDIGO guidelines base the definition and classification of CKD on glomerular filtration values and albuminuria as staging criteria and prognostic markers of the disease. The MDRD and MDRD-IDMS equations (when creatinine values can be traced to the reference method) are those most used, but both the 2013 KDIGO international guidelines and the new 2013 CKD consensus document, in which ten scientific societies participated under the direction of the Spanish Society of Nephrology, recommend to be replaced by the CKD-EPI equation. Our objective has been, as with previous equations, to develop tables that display the estimated glomerular filtration rate value using the CKD-EPI equation from serum creatinine concentration, age and sex, and thereby provide an instrument that facilitates the dissemination of this new equation, particularly in settings where it is not calculated automatically.
