0 Schwartz method / equation for estimating GFR in children

Reactions: 


Schwartz equation :

GFR (mL/min/1.73 m2) = ( k × Height in cm) / Creatinine in mg/dL
Creatinine value depends on

  1. Method of calculation : Jaffe's reaction ; Enzyme assay (best) 
  2. Muscle mass
k is a constant that depends on age.



Thus GFR will depend on :

  1. Age
  2. Height
  3. Muscle mass
  4. Method of calculating creatinine.
