Webinar: Cystatin C - Now is the time

Recommending increased use of cystatin C

Cystatin C is less susceptible to factors that affect muscle mass (age, diet, sex, physical activity, etc.), as it is expressed through all nucleated cells. Individuals with similar kidney function can therefore be expected to have similar serum concentrations of cystatin C.

KDIGO recommends the clinical use of cystatin C1, and The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) in the US and the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) have also recently, in a joint taskforce, recommended to increase the use of cystatin C combined with serum (blood) creatinine2, as a confirmatory assessment of GFR or kidney function.
