Interpretation

Estimated GFR is only reliable under steady state conditions (stable Creatinine >4 days). Caution should be used in interpretation in non-Caucasians, extremes of body weight, pregnancy, oedematous subjects, low Creatinine (<0.06mmol/L) and other complex cases. GFR declines by 1 ml/min/year over 40 years.
