1.1 MEASUREMENT OF RRF
1.1.1 Residual renal urine volume and residual renal Kt/V (rKt/V) should be measured every 3–6 months in patients with a peritoneal Kt/V (pKt/V) of less than 1.7 weekly, especially if RRF is rapidly declining. In all other PD patients, rKt/V and urinary volume should be measured together with pKt/V when clinically indicated (see Recommendation 2.1.5) (grade D, opinion).
1.1.2 It may help clinical understanding use a mean of 24-hour urine urea and creatinine clearance to express RRF as a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in milliliters per minute (grade D, opinion).
