I am told my Glomerular filtration Rate is 57.6. Does this indicate Kidney disease? Creatinine is 1.0 BUN is 20 total Protein is 7.0 I am 55 w/f

GFR: Your Estimated filtration rate is borderline. This is not a problem itself. The important concern is whether disease exists that might be progressive. Serum creatinine of 1.0 is "normal". So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion. ...Read more

My glomerular filtration rate has been very high for years, urea is very low, creatinine is always around the lower range. Is this a renal problem?

My glomerular filtration rate has been very high for years, urea is very low, creatinine is always around the lower range. Is this a renal problem?

No: eGFR (estimated GFR) is a number calculated from your serum creatinine and it is affected by the filtering function of your kidneys as well as other factors such as muscle mass. Low GFR (and high serum creatinine or urea) is a likely sign of abnormal filtering function of the kidneys. However, low serum creatinine does not indicate renal disease. ...Read more
