Cockcroft-Gault formula

It is a formula used to get an estimated creatinine clearance. It goes as follows:

eC_{Cr} = \frac { \mbox{(140 - Age)} \ \times \ \mbox{Mass (in kilograms)} \ \times \ {Constant} } {\mbox{Serum Creatinine (in } \mu \mbox{mol/L)}}

Creatinine clearance : mL/min
Age : years
constant : 1.23 for males, 1.04 for females

normal range:
men : 90 - 140 mL/min
women : 80 - 125 mL/min
