EGFR 71: Should be good. But interpretation depends on your ethnicity. Which I have not idea of what your ethnicity. Always include this information as many disease processes and medication responses differ by one's genetic background. Discuss with your team.

Cautious: It would be appropriate to consult a nephrologist to make sure that you do not have kidney disease. If you are hypertensive or diabetic, it would be doubly important to take preventive medication. Wish you good health!
