Pediatric Gfr Calculator



This pediatric GFR calculator is a version of our GFR calculator that is targeted for patients who are 18 years old or younger. There is a substantial difference in how this indicator is calculated for adults and children; read on to discover what it is and become familiar with the proper formulas.




Pediatric Gfr Calculator



According to the National Kidney Foundation, there are three main ways to estimate the GFR of children. Our pediatric GFR calculator uses all of them so that you can compare all results and see whether all of them are in the normal range.


George J. Schwartz, MD, is chief of the nephrology division in the department of pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical Center. He is also an elected member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation. Dr. Schwartz's research interests include acidosis and renal tubular disorders.


This calculator is used to estimate glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) using recent formulas for adults of various ethnic backgrounds. For individuals 21 and under, the Schwartz pediatric equation is also included. The GFR estimation is valid only under the assumption of steady state renal function.


TmP/GFR can be calculated, using a second morning spot urine and serum sample taken at the same time point [2-5]. Similarly, serum Pi, TmP/GFR are highest in early childhood and constantly decrease with age, reaching adult values after completion of pubertal growth. A commonly used formula to calculate TmP/GFR, which is applicable in both the fasting and non-fasting child, age-dependent reference values and an online calculator, are given below. It is important to use the same units for phosphate and creatinine values in the urine and serum samples, respectively.
