In brief: See below
Esrd short of end stage renal disease, is detected by measuring serum creatinine levels which reflect the kidneys ability to get rid of waste from the body, the higher the level , the worse the function.
Gfr can be calculated from creatinine level.Normal is 90 ml/min and if less than 10 ml/min generally requires dialysis and is called esrd.
