GFR Calculators: Serum Creatinine and Cystatin C (2012)
(With SI Units)

4 variable MDRD Study Equation, CKD-EPI Creatinine Equation (2009), CKD-EPI Cystatin C Equation (2012) and CKD-EPI Creatinine-Cystatin C Equation (2012) (with SI Units)
using standardized serum creatinine, age, race, gender and serum cystatin C
programmed by Stephen Z. Fadem, M.D., FACP, FASN
and Brian Rosenthal

This formula is valid only for adults over 18. Use the CKD-epi equations in persons over 70.
Use the Pediatric Calculator for persons under 18 years of age.

*All ethnic groups other than African American
Shortcut: Type underlined letters to toggle between variables

As of January 2013, many large commercial clinical laboratories have changed from using the MDRD Study equation to the CKD-EPI Creatine 2009 Equation for eGFR reporting.

elated diseases. In 1993, we opened the doors of our first dialysis centre at Jalan Hang Lekiu, Kuala Lumpur. Over the years, NKF has grown tremendously with the support from many parties. NKF has expanded its role from being just a dialysis treatment provider, to becoming a one-stop national resource centre for all kidney-related matters.
