Abstract

Chronic kidney disease prevalence increases markedly with age1 and accurate estimation of GFR is an important issue in older people. The Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration creatinine equation (CKD-EPIcr)2 and variations including cystatin C (CKD-EPIcys) or both creatinine and cystatin C (CKD-EPIcr-cys)3 have been recommended for estimating GFR.4 Recently, the Berlin Initiative Study (BIS) reported 2 GFR equations specifically developed in older people: BIS1, which uses creatinine, and BIS2, which uses both creatinine and cystatin C.5 Here, we compare how the BIS and CKD-EPI equations perform in a large cohort of older people.
