Table 1 Prevalence of low eGFR and proteinuria in North India.

From: Prevalence of low glomerular filtration rate, proteinuria and associated risk factors in North India using Cockcroft-Gault and Modification of Diet in Renal Disease equation: an observational, cross-sectional study

eGFR (ml/min/1.73 m2) CG/BSA (n = 5252) MDRD (n = 5252)
30–59 674 (12.8) 198 (3.8)
15–29 18 (0.3) 9 (0.2)
< 15 6 (0.1) 11 (0.2)
eGFR < 60 ml/min/1.73 m2 698 (13.3) 218 (4.2)
Proteinuria (≥ 1+): prevalence by eGFR strata   
30–59 42 (6.2) 27 (13.6)
15–29 9 (50) 5 (55.5)
< 15 6 (100) 10 (90.9)
eGFR < 60 ml/min/1.73 m2 57 (8.2) 42 (19.3)
Proteinuria (≥ 1+): prevalence in total population   
Proteinuria (≥ 1+) 118 (2.2) 118 (2.2)
  1. Values are absolute numbers; numbers in parentheses are prevalence (in %). The prevalence estimates of low eGFR by CG/BSA equation were higher than MDRD equation. Proportion of subjects with proteinuria increased as eGFR decreased.
  2. eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; CG/BSA, Cockcroft-Gault equation corrected for body surface area; MDRD, modification of diet in renal disease equation.
