In brief: Low kidney function

It is not normal for someone your age to have low kidney function.
More details are needed. Is this a chronic condition? Acute? Often medications, acute illness, dehydration, etc.. Can cause acute decrease in renal function. You need to sit down and discuss this with your doctor and possible a nephrologist.
