Add Health has released the following data for contract users:
Wave V Hepatic Injury
This file contains constructed measures designed to facilitate analysis and interpretation of hepatic injury based on venous blood collected via phlebotomy at the Wave V home exam. Assay results for aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) are available, as well as three semi-quantitative serum index assays – lipemia, hemolysis and icterus – to evaluate the possibility of interference with the AST or ALT assays. Moreover, two constructed measures are available – the AST/ALT ratio and its classification. N=5,381
Wave V Renal Function Addendum
This file contains constructed measures designed to facilitate analysis and interpretation of renal function based on venous blood collected via phlebotomy at the Wave V home exam. Updated estimations of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) based on 2021 guidelines are available using either the creatinine concentration or using both the creatinine and cystatin C concentrations. The estimations of GFR have been calculated according to the 2021 NIDDK CKD-EPI guidelines. Classifications of the new estimations according to both clinical and KDIGO guidelines are available as well. N=5,381
