eGFR is estimated GFR calculated by the abbreviated MDRD equation : 186 x (Creatinine/88.4)-1.154 x (Age)-0.203 x (0.742 if female) x (1.210 if black). If you have an eGFR value calculated by a local laboratory, use that. It is likely to be more accurate than this calculator, which cannot take into account local variations in creatinine measurements.
|Normal kidney function but urine findings or structural abnormalities or genetic trait point to kidney disease||Observation, control of blood pressure. More on management of Stages 1 and 2 CKD.|
|Mildly reduced kidney function, and other findings (as for stage 1) point to kidney disease||Observation, control of blood pressure and risk factors. More on management of Stages 1 and 2 CKD.|
|Moderately reduced kidney function||Observation, control of blood pressure and risk factors. More on management of Stage 3 CKD.|
|Severely reduced kidney function||Planning for endstage renal failure. More on management of Stages 4 and 5 CKD.|
