In brief: Don't worry

I assume that you are not in the US if your creatinine is 96, which would probably by in mmol.
In higher GFR's such as yourself, the MDRD equation is not as accurate, and thus your GFR is likely higher than that. There are other equations we use for you like CKD-EPI,but there are even newer surrogate markers coming out that may give a better picture, including use of cystitis C. You need not worry
