Undigested Protein In Chronic Kidney Failure
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".

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 2 more doctor answers

Egfr 72 (mdrd), age 45, controlled BP (ace), no protein in urine - how many years at this egfr can I expect to stay clear of end stage kidney failure?
Whoa: Estimated gfr's are subscientific. I see that you're hypertensive, but you can't possibly be in 'kidney failure', which you list, with an egfr of 72. They're based on creatinine which is a function of muscle, and (get this!) there's an adjustment of 25% for black people 'because african-americans are more muscular.' every gym dude is suddenly a kidney failure case, and most folks like you are ok. ...Read more
