In brief: GFR limitations

GFR is an estimated value based on creatinine at the time that might be highly influenced by immediate conditions that preceded the test, such as mild dehydration or OTC meds.
It is mostly the trend that is used by kidney specialists in order to estimate for possible damage on the kidney and possible onset of chronic kidney disease. Would suggest establishing with a nephrologist, given 15 yrs diab
