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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have stage 3 kidney disease Gfr 34, went to dr Wednesday and had labs done, labs show glucose 109 Is it to late to stop it from type 2 diabetes?
No: 109 fasting is suggestive of pre diabetes although you do need another abnormal lab to make the diagnosis. This is the best time for you to make lifestyle changes to reverse the course of sugar abnormalities. If you make the right changes, you can go back to normal and not progress to diabetes. ...Read more
I tested at a level of stage 3 kidney disease last week (gfr 43). What is the likelihood when retested this week that it would be "normal?"
Class 3 CKD: Your question is better answered by a nephrologist (n). At your age, it is not likely your GFR will improve. For a 77 year old female, you have well preserved kidney function. Improvements are possible in a low grf if there is some reversible cause responsible for it. Patients on advil-like drugs can have improved renal function if they come off them, for example. See a n for more information. ...Read more

Why do doctors consider a GFR over 60 normal when 60 is considered stage 2 chronic kidney disease? Seems like a fine line!
It's mild: Gfr over 60 is a mild loss of kidney function. Blood tests may be mildly elevated, or still normal in an older person. No symptoms or complications expected until later stages. Can do very well with prevention of more kidney damage by controlling hypertension, diabetes, avoiding kidney toxins, etc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Why do doctors consider a GFR over 60 normal, when 60 is considered stage 2 chronic kidney disease (ckd)? Seems like a fine like!
It is a fine line.: Gfr does gradually decrease due to aging. If you are 39 years old, then your GFR should be closer to 90+. So there would be a problem that requires a kidney specialist (nephrologist) to work up. A glomerular filtration rate of 60 is considered stage 2 (out of 5) chronic kidney disease (ckd). If you have hypertension, your blood pressure must be controlled tightly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am a stage 4 chronic kidney disease patient and my GFR is 10 but I don't feel sick and I am very active. Is there any chance that I don't need dialysis or transplant in future?
Unlikely: Kidney tends to be rather progressive after a given level. It is based upon the increased demand for the remaining kidney to continue to process the needs of a given amount of skeletal muscle. At age sixty, even if a small famle with a lower muscle mass than a similar sized male the amount of work needed to process would most likely wear out the kidney completely by average life expectancy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
