  • chronic
  • We aimed to evaluate the performance of the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) creatinine-cystatin C equation in a cohort of elderly Chinese participants. (dovepress.com)
  • range
  • 11.6 mL/minute/1.73 m 2 for the CKD-EPI creatinine equation, P =0.11), as the optimal scores of performance (6.0 versus a range from 1.0-2.0 for the other equations). (dovepress.com)
  • Measure
  • A blood test to measure the creatinine level in the blood is also usually done. (kidshealth.org)
  • Patients who change medical providers should not be surprised if their lab results edge up or down because there are slight variations in how labs measure creatinine. (livestrong.com)
  • Although hydration and strenuous exercise prior to your blood draw can have a noticeable affect on your GFR reading (I measured .14 lower on my creatinine measure, from one month to the next, by following the hydrating advice as Cora has offered you). (healthboards.com)
  • eGFR
  • That is to say, that as creatinine levels increase in a blood serum sample, there is a drop in percentage of kidney function, however, this drop of eGFR might be more meaningful, say between 1.0 to 1.5, than between 1.5-2.0. (healthboards.com)
  • steady
  • Because creatinine is filtered out at a fairly steady rate, doctors compare the creatinine level with levels of other substances to see if they're excreted at a normal rate. (kidshealth.org)
  • My creatinine has been steady for a few years at about 1.6, but last month it jumped to 2.0, which the doctor's assistant said put me in stage 4. (healthboards.com)
