Men usually excrete 175–220μmol/kg lean body mass/day, and women 130–175μmol/kg per day. • Changes in diet and body mass will affect serum and excreted creatinine concentrations. • Tubular creatinine secretion increases in progressive renal failure (acute or chronic) as the GFR falls, and can increase by >50%. This can lead to a gross overestimation of GFR by creatinine clearance (Ccrea) measures. A single dose of oral cimetidine can completely inhibit tubular secretion of creatinine and allow a more accurate measure of GFR from Ccrea.

Data on the incidence and prevalence of renal failure are collected by various registries around the world, and in most countries the incidence is increasing. Mean incidence of ESKD across Europe rose from 79 to 117 new patients per million population (PMP) per year between 1990 and 2000. UK renal registry data In the UK, 113 new patients PMP were dialysed in 2006 (annual acceptance rate). Median age was 65years (but lower for non-white patients), and 21% were >75years old. Diabetes now is the single most common renal diagnosis, at 22% for incident (but not prevalent) patients.
