The link between changes in a subject's metabolic syndrome components and her estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was evaluated in healthy Japanese women. We used data for 53 Japanese women (46.0±10.9 years) with a 1-year follow up. eGFR was defined by a new equation developed for Japan. There were no significant relationships between eGFR and clinical parameters at baseline. Subjects were given advice for dietary and lifestyle improvement. At the 1-year follow up, eGFR was significantly increased. In addition, changes in eGFR were weakly correlated with systolic blood pressure(r=-0.306, p=0.0260). A decrease in systolic blood pressure may be associated with improving eGFR in Japanese women.
