Compliance is a major problem, so drugs chosen should have minimal side effects and preferably need to be taken only once a day, with long duration of action to achieve full 24h BP control (but reduce dose if renally excreted when renal function declines). The following are useful guidelines for controlling BP in renal disease: • In diabetics, and non-diabetics with proteinuria >1g/24h, use an ACEI or ARB unless the patient is at risk of having RVD. Use an ARB if the patient develops a cough on an ACEI.

Com. Cockroft–Gault formula This was developed to calculate Ccrea based on plasma creatinine. It has all the potential problems for all formulae based on serum creatinine. In conventional units: CCr (mL/min) = (140 – Age (years)) × weight (kg) 72 × PCr (mg/dl) For women multiply by 85 (not 72). 23. Calculated Ccrea is often more reliable than 24h urine collections due to the inaccuracies in the urine collection itself. The calculation is still based on serum creatinine and will thus be inaccurate in patients with low muscle bulk, and has not been fully validated in children, pregnancy, and the very elderly.

A single dose of oral cimetidine can completely inhibit tubular secretion of creatinine and allow a more accurate measure of GFR from Ccrea. • If the errors are all minimized and the patient carefully instructed, then 24h urine collections can provide a reasonably accurate estimate of GFR, but this rarely happens in practice. Urea clearance can be measured simultaneously, and averaging creatinine and urea clearance produces the best approximation for GFR. This can be done automatically in laboratories to provide more accurate estimates of GFR.
