A wrapper function for the nankivell() vectorised function to calculate eGFR using the Nankivell formula, but using creatinine and BUN in mg/dl rather than international units. It has not been possible to run automated tests to confirm the accuracy of this function, so please use with caution.

nankivell_US(SCr, Urea, Weight, Height, Sex)

Arguments

SCr

numeric vector of serum creatinine in µmol/l (or mg/dl if units = "US")

Urea

numeric vector of serum urea in mmol/l (or BUN in mg/dl if units = "US")

Weight

numeric vector of patient weights in kilograms

Height

numeric vector of patient heights in centimetres

Sex

character vector of sex ("F" for female, "M" for male)

Value

a numeric vector of eGFR values
