Translated title of the contribution: Use cystatin C-based GFR-estimating equations

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is estimated by creatinine or cystatin C-based GFR-estimating equations. Those based upon creatinine, but not those based upon cystatin C, use ”race” terms due to that different populations differ in average muscular mass, influencing the creatinine, but not the cystatin C, level. “Race” is not a biological, but a sociological term, determined by self-assesment. New international studies therefore strongly recommend use of cystatin C-based GFR- estimating equations.
