Removal of the race/ethnicity correction for kidney function testing and the NICE Chronic
Kidney Disease (CKD) guideline

We welcome the update to the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) guidelines released on the 25 th August 2021. This has removed the recommendation from the previous guideline to adjust for ethnicity when calculating kidney function (the estimated glomerular filtration rate, eGFR) in people racialised as Black.
