2 doctors weighed in:

31 Caucasian male. 5”4 146lbs. Lab results creatinine-1.22, GFR-79, BUN-16, Protine-7. Is my gfr normal? Complete Urinalysis came back normal. Worried about kidneys because GFR says should be above 90.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

A GFR below 60 ml/min represents Stage 1 kidney failure.
You are still ok. It may be in your interest to see a dietician for dietary advice in terms of weight loss, sodium intake and the amount of protein in your diet.
