IRIS - Chronic Kidney Disease Guidelines

"Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is diagnosed based on evaluation of all available clinical and diagnostic information in a stable patient. The IRIS Board continues to recommend using creatinine, a widely available and well understood test, to diagnose and stage CKD. Symmetric dimethylarginine (SDMA), a new marker of kidney function, may be a useful adjunct for both diagnosis and staging of CKD."
