May be: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your eGFR is barely abnormal. 90 or greater would have been normal and your reading may be within the margin of error of the test. However, it would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor.
