In brief: GFR of 89

It is nice that you have diabetes and have a GFR that is in chronic kidney disease (ckd) stage 2.
A more important fact is do you have proteinuria/day (p) ? You had a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance to get your GFR level. If you did not have your protein (p) checked, you should ask your doctor to repeat a 24 hour urine for p. Patients with high p do much worse than those with a lower p.
