A wrapper function for the walser() vectorised function to calculate eGFR using the Walser formula, using serum creatinine in mg/dl. It has not been possible to run automated tests to confirm the accuracy of this function, so please use with caution.

walser_US(SCr, Age, Weight, Sex)

Arguments

SCr

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

Age

numeric vector of patient ages in years

Weight

numeric vector of patient weights in kilograms

Sex

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

Value

numeric vectors of eGFR values
