Does anyone know of a source or formula that is used to correlate a patient's serum creatinine level with % glomerular or kidney function?
Thanks for the assist!
Table: Serum Creatinine and Kidney Function
Serum Creatinine (mg/dL)*
Approximate Nephron Loss
Less than 50% of nephrons lost
Between 50% and 75% of nephrons lost
Between 75% and 90% of nephrons lost
More than 90% of nephrons lost
End Stage Renal Disease
*: milligrams of creatinine per deciliter of serum
Hope this is what you were looking for!
This site shows how to calculate clearance....
This one is from kidney.org.....
