Kidney function in severely obese adolescents undergoing bariatric surgery.
Bottom Line: Mean age and median body mass index (BMI) were 17.1 years and 50.5 kg/m(2) , respectively; 76% were females and 65% were non-Hispanic white race.In adjusted analyses, female gender and increasing ferritin levels were significantly associated with the presence of microalbuminuria/macroalbuminuria.Increasing BMI and homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance values were significantly associated with lower eGFR.

Mentions: The mean cystatin C-based eGFR was 107.6 ml/min/1.73m2. Most of the Teen-LABS participants (68.5%) had a normal eGFR (90–150 ml/min/1.73m2) However, 51 (21.4%) had an eGFR of 60–90 ml/min/1.73m2; 7 (3.0%) had an eGFR <60 ml/min/1.73m2; and 17 (7.1%) had an eGFR >150 ml/min/1.73m2. Percentile distribution of eGFR from the Teen-LABS cohort and from published NHANES data is shown in Figure 1. There were more subjects in low percentile and high percentile brackets in the Teen-LABS cohort than in the NHANES participants.14
