With a decrease in GFR, there is a trend of false alterations in these tests: Liver transaminases tend to decrease to very low levels, pancreatic amylase and lipase, troponins, and BNP/NT-proBNP levels tend to increase above cutoff concentrations. All these alterations should be interpreted carefully, and “real” implications of test results should be assessed within the clinical context of the patient. 2 Clinical Assessment of a Patient with Chronic Kidney Disease 27 References Before You Finish: Practice Pearls for the Clinician • In each visit, a CKD patient should be assessed for general well-being, for progression and any factor for acute deterioration of CKD, for presence of any complications or comorbidity, and for cardiovascular health.

GFR usually correlates well with the prognosis and complications of CKD like anemia, mineralbone disorders, and cardiovascular disease. GFR should be determined for confirming diagnosis, staging the disease, estimating the prognosis and making decisions about treatment in all CKD patients. GFR level may also be used to decide appropriate timing to start renal replacement therapies.

Several GFR prediction equations that use serum creatinine or some other filtration markers along with certain patient characteristics (like age, gender, and race) are giving precise estimates of GFR in various clinical settings [3]. 1. Serum creatinine, Creatinine clearance, and GFR estimating equations: These are the most M. 1 How often should GFR be monitored in CKD?
