Screening for Kidney Diseases: Older Measures versus Novel Biomarkers

I. Wu, C. R. Parikh
2008 American Society of Nephrology. Clinical Journal  
The measurement of serum creatinine as a screening test for kidney disease falls short, however, because serum creatinine is not particularly sensitive for the diagnosis of kidney disease.  ...  Biomarkers have been used to screen for kidney disease since creatinine was recognized to be correlated with renal function.  ...  The amount of protein excretion signifies the severity of nephrotic syndrome and creatinine clearance screens for a loss in GFR.  ...
