  • The serum creatinine should also be plugged into a formula that gives an estimated kidney filtration rate (called glomerular filtration rate, or eGFR) which is a much more accurate estimate of kidney function.

  • FAST's technology measures the body's kidney function, known as glomerular filtration rate, or GFR, by monitoring inert markers that have been injected into a patient's bloodstream.

  • Renal function, as reflected by glomerular filtration rate and tubular secretion, decreases steadily with increasing age. 16 There is a 6-10 percentdecrease in renal function per decade after age 40, such that, even a healthy 70 year old male can have a 40-50percent decline of renal function. 7 Drugs which are cleared primarily by the kidneys will, therefore, take longer to be excreted.

  • Today, I cite an article by Sankar Navaneethan and Hans Yehnert published in the latest issue of the Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases (SOARD) suggesting that bariatric surgery may halt and perhaps even reverse progressive loss of renal function in severely obese patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease (glomerular filtration rate [GFR] 30 – 59 mL/min/1.73 m2).

  • He wrote a note to me, which I forwarded to the transplant center, explaining, "Since many vegans have lower (healthier) protein intake than omnivores, and NO animal protein intake, their GFRs [glomerular filtration rates, y'all - HR] will often be lower ... vegetarian and vegan diets actually improve kidney function for patients with kidney disease."

  • The vampire bat and shrew have an extremely high protein intake, and the glomerular filtration rate GFR is not commensurate with the large urea load to be excreted.

    "The disdain is palpable," Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry writes about Andrew Sullivan writing about me.
