OBJECTIVE: Estimation of glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is essential in the diagnosis and monitoring of patients with kidney disease and for correct dosage of drugs eliminated from the circulation by the kidneys. Cystatin C has been shown in several studies to be superior to creatinine in estimating eGFR. However, there are few studies on the performance of cystatin C estimated eGFR (eGFRCystC) in patients with advanced kidney disease and low GFR. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We measured serum cystatin C, together with serum creatinine, during iohexol clearance in patients with iohexol clearance below 30 mL/min/1.73 m2. The cystatin C values were used to calculate eGFRCystC using the formula eGFR (mL/min/1.73 m2) = 79.901*(cystatin C value in mg/L)-1.4389. RESULTS: There was good correlation between eGFRCystC and iohexol clearance (r = 0.88) in patients with iohexol clearance.
