Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR)

Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR)

Age

The Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) test measures how well your kidneys are functioning. It is a blood test that estimates the amount of blood filtered by the glomeruli, the tiny filters in the kidneys. The eGFR test considers a person's age, sex, race, and blood creatinine level to calculate the estimated kidney function. The body produces creatinine as a byproduct of muscle metabolism, and the kidneys are responsible for removing it from the blood. The eGFR test is considered more accurate than a simple blood creatinine test because it accounts for these additional factors. A normal eGFR is typically above 90 mL/min/1.73m2, and a value below this indicates some level of kidney damage. The eGFR is reported in mL/min/1.73m2, which is a measure of the amount of blood filtered by the kidneys per minute normalized to a standard body surface area.

Frequently asked questions

A normal eGFR value is typically greater than or equal to 90 mL/min/1.73mยฒ, although the normal range may vary slightly depending on the laboratory and the individual's age, gender, and race.

A low eGFR value may indicate reduced kidney function or chronic kidney disease (CKD). Your healthcare provider may recommend additional tests and treatment options if your eGFR value is below normal.

Several factors can affect eGFR results, including age, gender, race, muscle mass, and certain medications. Your healthcare provider can help you understand how these factors may affect your eGFR test results.

The frequency of eGFR testing may vary depending on your medical history and risk factors for kidney disease. Your healthcare provider can help determine how often you should get eGFR testing.
