What is the effect of severe Hypo albuminemia and Massive proteinuria on falsely lowering e GFR and Lowering Serum Creatinine?
10 years ago

I am not aware of this relationship. Perhaps others might have some ideas. Why do you think there is a such an effect?

It has something to do with tubular secretion of creatinine once massive proteinuria is there, rather than True Glomerluar filtration, I don't know the mechanism but I wanted some more information.

Hmmm, I have not heard of this either. Could you post a link to a reference?

Hi, Please read this article in NDT Hofstra JM, Willems JL, Wetzels JF: Estimated glomerular filtration rate in the nephrotic syndrome. NDT 26: 550-556, 2011. Thanks
