MDRD GFR Calculator - (SI Units Version)

by Stephen Z. Fadem, M.D., FACP, FASN

Serum creatinine
mg/dL μmol/L
Creatinine methods recalibrated to be traceable to IDMS.
Age years
Race African American All other races*
Gender Male Female

GFR Value:??? mL/min/1.73 m2

(Age, Race, Gender, Plasma creatinine)

Chronic kidney disease (GFR less than 60 or
kidney damage for at least three months)

*All ethnic groups other than African American
NOTE: The estimated GFR values above 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 should be interpreted as "above 60 mL/min/1.73 m2," not an exact number.
