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. .
Yes, early stage. The glomerular filtration rate, as reported, suggests that you have renal disease, albeit not an advanced stage. You should consult a nephrologist. Consult this site for calculation of GFR, as depending on the equation used, your GFR may not be considered abnormal. http://www.kidney.org/professionals/kdoqi/gfr_calculator.cfm.
Maybe not. Estimates of the glomerular filtration rate are subscientific. There's even a shameful ~25% adjustment for race "because black people are more muscular than white people." In my book, a creatinine of 1.0 is fine for a woman, especially if you're physically fit -- muscle raises creatinine and body, strength athletes are being misdiagnosed as kidney cases in huge numbers.

No. Talk sensibly with your physician. A creatinnie of 1.0 is perfectly healthy even for a college girl. These eGFR's are subscientific -- for example, there's a special adjustment 'because black people are 25% more muscular than white people'. I'd urge you to stop worrying unless your urinalysis is abnormal or you can't concentate your urine or have symptoms. Read more...
Kidney function. based on new formulas yes, sorry for saying this but you do have kidney disease. Which most likely related to age. Older we get, our body gets older too. Also depens (penicillamine) on your medical problems. I would encourage you to do a few things: drink more fluids, stay away from NSAIDs, see kidney doctor and if you take any medications let your doctor review them so they would not cause damage to your kidney.
