Estimated GFR: The egfr is just that... An estimation. And while the approx range for women is about 120, that number varies a lot based on age, body size, muscle mass, ethnicity. So while the strict classification would put you in CKD range, the question to ask your doctor is if that number is clinically relevant for you or is this your "baseline" - a nephorologist along with your primary could help clarify.
