GFR- please help interpret what this means

GRF=60, creatinine=1.07; what does this mean? Is this bad?
blood calcium level is also slightly elevated, above 10.

GFR is a standerd rating at what your kidney is functioning at-60% creitine level looks to be elevated-My hubbys ran 1.8 for the longest time then jumped to 2.4. when I see calcium I think Kidney stones as my hubbys son just went through 5 stones.I am not a doctor and all this is an opionion-but from my hubbys doctor kidney has to be 15% before Dyalisi-Unfortunatly we are at 20% but other problems have taken presedence and His one remaining Kidney is the least of our worrys.

Do you think this is worth pointing out to my doctor? Just found it in reviewing my results.

Is there a difference between estimated GFR and GFR? This is my EGFR.

Re: GFR- please help interpret what this means

my friend thyroida, let me help ...your calcium is not a problem just stop using products that contain to much calcium for now , like tums or antiacids ,dont worry ur calcium is not to elevated that will be normal in no time ,,,,your GFR is a messurment of your kidney function the (60) is telling you that your kidneys are working ok just not 100%,you can have a normal life with that GFR just follow your dc. advice and take your blood pressure mds

Re: GFR- please help interpret what this means

thyroida your creatinine yes is alittle elevated ,dont worry to much people go to dyalisis normally when their creatinine is much higher than that (4.0--10.0) ,the normal level of creatinine depending your race and other factors are aound(0.8-0.9) your creatinine is not that bad ,but you have to chance you life style , take mds for your blood pressure control it every day..do no comsume salt,no smoking,drink water inted of sodas, do not stress your self ,be happy ,exercise ..... a friend
