 An accurate assessment of renal function is critical for adequate dosing of medications. The most informative marker reflecting the functional state of the kidneys is glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Determination of inulin clearance is the most accurate way to assess GFR in children and adults. In this case, the method is invasive, cumbersome, younger children require the installation of a urinary catheter. Techniques for radioisotope estimation of GFR can solve this problem, but all widely used radioisotopes have the ability to bind slightly to plasma proteins, which leads to an underestimation of real values.

 The review is devoted to current state of the problem of primary hyperparathyroidism. One of the important steps in the study of pathology of parathyroid glands and their decision value in development of primary hyperparathyroidism was introduction of automated screening of the ionized calcium of plasma of blood to all patients asking for medical care. Understanding of the nature of this process allowed the doctors of many specialities to unite the efforts in the analysis of results of the already accumulated experience and extend possibilities of early preclinical exposure of this disease.
