N-Acetyl-β-D-Glucosaminidase Does Not Enhance Prediction of Cardiovascular or All-Cause Mortality by Albuminuria in a Low-Risk Population
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-06-05)
Albuminuria is a well known risk factor for cardiovascular disease and mortality, but focus on renal tubular dysfunction as a potential risk factor is growing also. The association between the urinary activity of N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) and cardiovascular risk has been assessed mostly in cross-sectional studies. We studied the cross-sectional associations between urinary NAG and cardiovascular ...
Estimated and Measured GFR Associate Differently with Retinal Vasculopathy in the General Population
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-11)
Background/Aims: Estimated GFR (eGFR) is used extensively in epidemiological research. Validations of eGFR have demonstrated acceptable performance, but the dependence of creatinine and cystatin C on non-GFR factors could confound associations with disease. Few studies have investigated this issue in direct comparison with measured GFR (mGFR). We compared the associations between eGFR and mGFR ...
