Gentian Diagnostics (Gentian), a leading manufacturer of cystatin C, is proud to announce its commitment to kidney care following the release of the KDIGO 2024 Clinical Practice Guideline for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The guideline underscores the pivotal role of cystatin C in estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and tailoring treatment decisions based on individual kidney function status, especially when combined with creatinine. The latest guidelines which recommends increased use of cystatin C aims to improve patient care, particularly in scenarios where precise dosing of medications is paramount.
Cystatin C-based assessments offer a more reliable estimation of GFR, enabling healthcare providers to make informed decisions tailored to each patient's unique kidney function profile. By leveraging the accuracy of cystatin C alongside creatinine, clinicians can optimize treatment strategies, ensuring that medication dosages are precisely calibrated to individual kidney function status. This advancement is crucial for enhancing patient outcomes and minimizing risks associated with improper dosing.
Gentian's dedication to offering high-quality cystatin C aligns well with the standards outlined in the KDIGO 2024 CKD guidelines. The company's focus on precision and reliability in GFR assessments reflects a commitment to excellence in kidney care, empowering healthcare professionals with the tools needed to deliver personalized treatment plans that prioritize patient well-being.
