Abstract

Several creatinine-based estimates of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) have been advocated as reliable alternatives to the urinary clearance of exogenous filtration markers. The Cockcroft-Gault (C-G) equation requires a body weight parameter, which was not included in the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) Study and the Mayo Clinic Quadratic Equation (MCQE) formulas. However, there is little information on the lifestyle influences on these equations, especially the intensity and the type of physical activity.
