Abstract

The magnitude of differences in serum creatinine measurements in NHANES III and 1999-2000 from standard creatinine would result in large differences in estimates of kidney function (10% to 20%). Thus, correction of original creatinine values in NHANES III and 1999-2000 is essential, but no correction is needed for NHANES 2001-2002 or 2003-2004.
