Background After initiating cardioprotective agents, a fall of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) has been reported in several studies. Our goal was to evaluate the accuracy of change of Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) eGFR in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) after short-term pharmacological intervention with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, angiotensin-receptor blocker, gliptin or sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitor.



Conclusion: The agreement between eGFR by CKD-EPI and mGFR is modest and the change of renal function after short-term pharmacological intervention is not accurately and precisely reflected by the change of eGFR in patients with T2D in the early stage of their disease.
