AACC releases guidance on kidney injury lab testing

By LabPulse.com staff writers

May 12, 2021 -- The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) released guidance on lab testing for acute kidney injury (AKI) patients that proposes new diagnostic thresholds for whether a patient has AKI with creatinine testing.

One of the major recommendations is to propose that clinicians use the 20/20 AACC acute kidney injury criteria to determine whether a patient has an injured kidney using creatinine testing. This was recommended due to recent evidence that has linked the 2012 Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes guidelines for creatinine testing with high rates of false positives.
