This is a little different . Sorry if I'm in the wrong place. Yesterday I had a blood test. This morning I got the results from my online lab account.
eGFR was 82, and Creatinine was 64. I'm 75 yrs of age. The score range according to the lab for creatinine is 50-100 umol/L which is in the normal range and for eGFR 60-89, which says
"consistent with mildly decreased kidney function. However, in the absence of other evidence of kidney disease, eGFR values in this range do not fulfil the KD1GO criteria for chronic kidney disease" If there was an abnormal score in any test result, the lab would have it flagged in BOLD letters, but nothing was flagged in the results at all. I'm a little concerned here & would appreciate your advice. Thanks
Thanks so much for your response. I do not have polycystic kidney disease. Actually, I had exactly the same result last July as the 1st writer on this blog. I'm with the understanding that
eGFR can decline with age. As mentioned my eGFR score on Wed. was 82, and the creatinine was 64 which was well within the range. I haven't heard back from my Dr., so I'm assuming
everything is ok. I looked back into some of my blood work papers & over 2yrs ago, I had an eGFR score of 81, but last year the score was over 90 again.
I'm mildly concerned, but not worried. Yes, there is absence of evidence of kidney disease which likely diminishes the concern of the eGFR score.
Any comment to this? Thanks in advance!!!
