  • equations
  • The predictive ability of cystatin C and equations used to estimate glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), including Cockcroft-Gault, MDRD, and the new Chronic Kidney Disease-Epidemiology (CKD-EPI) equation, were evaluated for their ability to predict the composite endpoint of cardiovascular death or MI within 1 year.

  • efferent
  • In other words, the filtration rate is dependent on the difference between the higher blood pressure created by vasoconstriction of the input or afferent arteriole versus the lower blood pressure created by lesser vasoconstriction of the output or efferent arteriole. (wikipedia.org)
  • membrane
  • The glomerular filtration coefficient depend upon: The surface area of the filtering membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • The dialyzer clearance K is usually estimated, based on the urea transfer ability of the dialyzer (a function of its size and membrane permeability), the blood flow rate, and the dialysate flow rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • basal
  • In keeping with its housekeeping gene properties, it has been suggested that cystatin C might be influenced by the basal metabolic rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • indicate
  • There are numerous coated vesicles and coated pits along the basolateral domain of the podocytes which indicate a high rate of vesicular traffic. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • The investigators also found that reduced glomerular filtration rate ranked below high systolic blood pressure, high body mass index, and high fasting plasma glucose, but was similar to high total cholesterol, as a risk factor for disability-adjusted life years. (doctorslounge.com)
  • Symptoms of mild hypothermia may be vague, with sympathetic nervous system excitation (shivering, high blood pressure, fast heart rate, fast respiratory rate, and contraction of blood vessels). (wikipedia.org)
  • damage
  • The glomerular damage may manifest as mesangioproliferative or membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis due to depositions of immune complexes in the glomeruli. (hindawi.com)
  • accurate
  • Measuring glomerular filtration rate directly is considered the most accurate way to detect changes in kidney status, but measuring the GFR directly is complicated, requires experienced personnel, and is typically performed only in research settings and transplant centers. (labtestsonline.org)
  • type
  • Each subject was asked to rate a specific statement on a five-point Likert-type scale, based on how often they suffered various specific complaints in the preceding 3 months: (1) never or almost never, (2) occasionally, (3) often, (4) very often, and (5) always. (wikipedia.org)
