Does hepatic impairment influence renal function parameters in liver cirrhosis?

level cystatin C was an independent predictor of mortality and development of HRS-1.[ 8 ] Serum β 2 microglobulin is another renal function parameter that correlates with glomerular filtration rate. A study showed that serum β 2 microglobulin concentration was significantly increased in patients with liver cirrhosis (especially non-alcoholic cirrhosis).[ 9 ] Serum β 2 microglobulin level was elevated in HCV-related chronic liver disease, and may also be used as a marker for progression towards liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.[ 10 ] Herein, we
