low gfr

Iam 24, few weeks back It all started with sore throat, cough,mild fever(on and off), joint pains all over my body, fatigue. I was tested for Lyme but it came out negative. It shows that i have low gfr I.e 59. Shall I consider this as a chronic kidney disease. What are the other tests I need to take to confirm this.please help me out.

Re: low gfr

The eGFR is not that accurate a measure. How were your other kidney function tests? Is the doc concerned? Were you dehydrated? Many things can affect the estimated GFR. You also need to watch it over repeated lab tests over time, not a one shot deal.

Re: low gfr

Thanks a lot for your reply. It is comprehensive metabolic panel test.soidum 139,potassium 4.2,chloride 104,co2 29, albumin 4.6, bilirubin1.03(high), calcium 10.0, glucose 91,blood urea nitrogen7,creatinine0.87,gfr shows greater than 59,all phosphatase82,protein 7.1,ast 22,globulin2.5,alt26. So this is what it shows and I have an appointment with my doc Tom. Shoud see what's he gonna say..I think this is some kind of bacterial infection which affected my kidneys.

Thanks.
Big relief. I was told I'm Stage 2 but by this chart I'm a stage 3. I'll look at several results before I reach a conclusion. Thank you.

Re: low gfr

My GFR is 38. I have just joined this healthboard, and I think i may have a problem after reading some of these post. I hope you are doing well and have found out the problem you are having.
