In brief: EGFR

You realize that in the egfr the "e" stands for estimated.
It is arrived at by taking the patient's age, sex, race, and serum creatinine level and plugging those data into a formula. To get your "actual" GFR is, see a nephrologist (n) and have a 24 hour urine collected for a creatinine clearance which will give it to you. Causes of a low GFR are drugs and obstruction. See a n for more information.
