Review of Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) Calculation

April 12 2022
Client Notice: Recent evidence has emerged that suggests a reassessment of the formula for calculating estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) may be in order.

We would like to inform health care providers and patients that LifeLabs is reviewing this evidence, along with other laboratories and relevant professional organizations, to determine any changes required in the calculation of eGFR.

We will communicate any potential changes once the review is complete.

If you have any further questions, please contact the LifeLabs clinical biochemist below, or LifeLabs Customer Care Centre at 1-877-849-3637.

We welcome your feedback!
