My blood test paperwork says GFR is 85.1ml/min/1.73 m2. Is this normal? The lab paperwork says chronic kidney disease?

In brief: Maybe

For the past decade there has been a fad to estimate GFR subscientifically from a spot blood creatinine, making every well-muscled man a "chronic kidney disease" case.
The pathologists and nephrologists who have no use for cookbook medicine are unhappy about this. Talk with your physician about what's really happening.
