Bence Jones proteins are missed with dipstick analysis because -

Correct! Wrong!

Evaluation of proteinuria by urine dipstick does not actually measure protein but instead detects the negative electrochemical charge that characterizes albumin.
Bence Jones proteins - positively charged so Bence Jones proteins are missed with dipstick analysis.

Urine dipstick for proteins DIRECTLY detects -

Correct! Wrong!

Cockcroft-Gault formula: Estimated creatinine clearance rate (eCCR)
Creatinine clearance can be estimated using serum creatinine levels.

Cockcroft-Gault formula uses all of the following EXCEPT -
