Description:

Salazar and Corcoran developed gender-specific equations for predicting creatinine clearance in obese patients based on serum creatinine and fat free body mass. These equations more accurately predict creatinine clearance than standard equations and can be used to adjust medications for reduced renal function. The authors are from State University of New York in Buffalo and the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.
