Sample text

N Gross hematuria is the presence of red or brown urine that is visible to the naked eye. The degree of discoloration has limited value because as little as 1 mL of blood per liter of urine can cause varying degrees of urine discoloration. In the initial evaluation of a patient with gross hematuria, it must be determined whether the urine discoloration is truly secondary to pathologic bleeding within the urinary tract. In patients who are menstruating or in the postpartum states, it is not ideal to evaluate them for hematuria.

The level of all known endogenous filtration markers is determined by factors other than GFR, including generation from metabolism and diet, tubular secretion, or reabsorption and extrarenal elimination. GFR estimating equations use the filtration marker in combination with demographic variables to overcome some of the limitations from non-GFR determinants. Two creatinine-based estimating equations are the MDRD Study equation and CKD-EPI equation. 3. All estimates of GFR based on serum creatinine will be less accurate in patients not in a steady state of creatinine balance (in whom serum creatinine is changing), in patients at the extremes of muscle mass (such as the frail elderly, critically ill, or those with cancer or, conversely, body builders), or those with unusual diets.
