Estimated glomerular filtration rate (CKD-EPI formula)
Name egfr_ckdepi_gprd
Chapter Genitourinary system diseases/Renal failure
Estimated glomerular filtration rate using CKD-EPI formula, using serum creatinine in micromol/L.

Reference: Levey AS et al. A New Equation to Estimate Glomerular Filtration Rate, Ann Intern Med. 2009;150:604-612.

Note: We do not know if creatinine measurements in CPRD are calibrated to IDMS. Therefore we multiply the raw creatinine by 0.95 to obtain conservative values for perhaps uncalibrated creatinine. We also multiply by 0.011312 to convert from micromol/L to mg/dL.

egfr_ckdepi = 141 * min(crea_gprd * 0.010746 / K, 1)^alpha
* max(crea_gprd * 0.010746 / K, 1)^-1.209 
* 0.993^age * 1.018 [if female]  * 1.159 [if black]

alpha = -0.329 for females, -0.411 for males
K = 0.7 for females, 0.9 for males
