Cystatin C is claimed to be superior to creatinine-based estimates of glomerular filtration rate (eGFRcr). The purpose of the study is to analyze whether cystatin C, creatinine, and/or estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFR) predicted cardiovascular and/or non-cardiovascular deaths among Finnish elderly.
