Thanks for your question.
GFR is glomerular filtration rate/.
This measures the rate of kidney filtration or in other words how well your kidneys are functioning.
The GFR value variers by the race.
For your race ( caucasian or white), the normal is above 60 ml/min.
As per this report, you have mild to moderate decrease in kidney function.
This can be due to the dehydration, medication, or underlying diseases.
Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and kidney diseases can cause this.
Hence, you should see a kidney specialist for further evaluation.
The test should be repeated after a month.
And you should drink plenty of fluids.
Follow a low salt diet.
If the nurse said something about dehydration whnetaken a sampleld that have effect the utcome that day?
That is the common cause.
That is why I suggested drink plenty of fluids.
The test can be repeated after a month.
