Changes to eGFR and Albuminuria Reporting

Ontario’s community laboratories routinely calculate estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), based on the MDRD (Modification of Diet in Renal Disease) equation, whenever serum creatinine is requested in an adult. Recently, a modified eGFR equation has been developed and endorsed by KDIGO (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes), the Canadian Society of Nephrology, and the Ontario Renal Network. Dynacare will be calculating eGFR based on the CKD-EPI formula starting May 4, 2015. For more information, please see the Client Notice below.
