A prospective study of acute kidney injury according to KDIGO definition and its mortality predictors.
Type 2 diabetic patients 30 years or above, irrespective of gender, diagnosed to have acute kidney injury using KDIGO criteria, admitted to ICU or wards under the Dept of Medicine and Nephrology, Govt.
In our study, the majority (82%) of the predialysis patients failed to meet the criteria for normal ferritin levels (>100 ng/mL) recommended by the KDOQI and KDIGO guidelines, and this is in keeping with the high prevalence of low ferritin (93%) reported in the CKiD study.
However, VSKIPS defined AKI with the Acute Kidney Injury Network criteria (using serum creatinine levels and hourly urine output), whereas our study was based on the KDIGO classification (defined as an increase in creatinine level to >0.3 mgm[L.sup.-1]in the first 48 h after surgery) (14).
Where baseline was absent, creatinine was estimated using the modified diet in renal disease (MDRD) formula (expected GFR of 75 mL/min/1.73 [m.sup.2]) as recommended in KDIGO guidelines (http://www.kdigo.org/clinical_practice_guidelines/pdf/ KDIGO%20AKI%20Guideline.pdf).
AKI was defined as any of the following according to KDIGO guidelines [12]:
Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines recommended maintaining serum phosphate in the normal range (0.81 to 1.45 mmol/l) for patients with renal failure, CKD stage III to V (CKD-ND) [11].
Other authors used the KDIGO guideline indicating the iPTH target threshold for treatment, a value which is nine times above the upper limit of a normal PTH assay (i.e., 585 pg/ml if the upper range of the normal assay is 65 pg/ml), even though a parathyroidectomy is generally not performed at this value.

Currently, the risk, injury, failure, loss, and end stage (RIFLE) and the Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guideline are adopted to diagnose AKI.
