As you know the progression of kidney disease is dependent on multiple factors. A kidney failure risk equation was developed by using meta-analysis of data from patients with CKD stages 3-5 referred to nephrologists in Canada, which has now been validated in more than 700,000 individuals spanning 30 + countries worldwide.
An estimator was developed using the equation. The estimator takes into account the 8 individual variables of gender, age, eGFR, UACR, serum calcium, serum phosphorus, serum bicarbonate (Total CO2) and serum albumin.
Users may be impressed by the calculated benefit of improved serum bicarbonate. Achieving optimal serum bicarbonate levels with Bicarbi may be a low cost, well tolerated manner in which to slow the progression of kidney function decline.
Nephcentric has had no influence in the development of the equation, nor does nephcentric make any claims on the accuracy of the estimator.
