Estimation of glomerular filtration rate: does haemoglobin discriminate between ageing and true CKD?
Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation
Aim. The aim of this study was to analyse the association between chronic kidney disease (CKD) defined by an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) <60 ml/min/ 1.73 m 2 and anaemia in older people. Background. Guidelines focus on early identification and management of CKD to prevent CKD progression and cardiovascular disease. However, the significance of CKD classification using eGFR in older people is unclear. Methods. Serum creatinine and haemoglobin from individuals attendingdoi:10.1093/ndt/gfn738 pmid:19131346 fatcat:25ackigofjdxneg4oalvc62z4i
