Formatted abstract
Jose and Lawton identify a concern about the wording in the position statement relating to one of the caveats on the use of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).

The intention of the Australasian Creatinine Consensus Working Group was to highlight that, in certain populations, the MDRD (Modification of Diet in Renal Disease) formula for calculating GFR has not been validated, and that, in such populations, caution should be exercised in applying the formula. This conservative approach was deemed appropriate, as significant population differences in muscle mass (such as have been documented between whites and African-Americans and between men and women) could lead to a formula correction factor being applied in these groups.
