I'm afraid we are going to see lots of changes like this in the future, with our system more focused on crisis care and palliative care for the chronically ill rather than prevention and cures. This just totally slipped past, without patients or doctors having a say. The eGFR is much less invasive and can catch it early, before moderate and end stage, well it used to be able to before they decided to stop reporting any value over 60. What a waste.
