Age (years)
 Serum Creatinine

IDMS calibrated Creatinine
(see notes below)
Creatinine Clearance (mL/min/1.73 m2)

Calculation(s) used

eGFR  = 186 x (Screatinine)-1.154 x (Age)-0.203 x (0.742 if female) x (1.212 if Afro-Carribean)
Screatinine in mg/dL

If IDMS calibrated creatinine used then eGFR = eGFR x (175/186)

CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) severity staging

Level of renal impairment
> 90
and No Proteinuria

Normal kidney function

and evidence of renal damage
60 to 89 CKD2 (mild)
30 to 59 CKD3 (moderate)
15 to 29 CKD4 (severe)
<15 CKD5 (renal failure)

IDMS (Isotope Dilution Mass Spectrometry)

Some laboratories calibrate their Creatinine using the IDMS method in order to improve precision. This method may achieve a precision of 0.25%.[3]
