MDRD

MDRD

A randomised trial with 2–4 years of planned followup that asked whether restriction of protein in the diet reduced the incidence of end-stage renal disease and death. While the early conclusion (1994) was that reduction was an insignificant, subsequent analysis (1999) concluded that the balance of evidence suggested a beneficial effect of protein restriction.

Among patients with stage 2 disease assessed using the MDRD equation, 4% had normal bone mineral density, 35% had osteopenia, and 60% had osteoporosis.
For each participant, we calculated the eGFR using the 4-parameter MDRD equation and the laboratory's reported creatinine.
In 2002 the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) of the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) recommended the use of the MDRD prediction equation for estimation of GFR as part of management of patients with CKD.
In all studies, the only demographic and pretreatment skill differences between students with MD-only versus MDRD were expected based on prior work (e.
The advisory also emphasizes the need for healthcare providers to routinely screen for CKD and encourages laboratories to report estimated kidney function using the MDRD formula in CVD patients.
