Re: what is a GFR of 67?

GFR is globular filtration rate and it measures how well the kidneys are functioning. Anything over 60is generally good. If you are African American you need to multiply the GFR by 1.1 or 1.2 to get the correct figure.

Re: what is a GFR of 67?

Hello! My first post
I was looking up kidney stone information, my GFR is exactly 60, I am unsure what this even means but I guess I have some looking up to do.

Is 60 bad?

60 is not bad as long as that is where it stays. If it starts to drop below 60 then you should see a urologist or nephrologist.

Re: what is a GFR of 67?

This is the table they use...

Stage Description GFR* mL/min/1.73m2

1 Slight kidney damage with normal or increased filtration More than 90
2 Mild decrease in kidney function 60–89
3 Moderate decrease in kidney function 30–59
4 Severe decrease in kidney function 15–29
5 Kidney failure requiring dialysis or transplantation Less than 15

You may be right but I saw a table that shows >60 is Stage 1

It could be different scales since you are UK. I have a copy of lab scales in my car, I will repost after I can access that report.

Re: what is a GFR of 67?

Thanks for the information, the number I do have is from my Urologist, I was recently diagnosed of having "several" kidney stones. I am also passing too much calcium and citrate.

I am now surprised nothing was mentioned at my appointment since it does state normal range is 90-120 with mine being >60.
