Got some lab results back today and my doctor only said my kidney function was low. My Bun was 13, creatinine was 1.21, albumin, 4.5. All said normal range. But one line read as: EST GFR Nonafrican American:74 Low.
they drew more blood but I'm worried. Please Help

Hello,
The normal GFR is 100-140 mls/min; it may be less than 90 in mild kidney failure. These values can vary lab to lab.A detailed history on intake of anti-inflammatory drugs, diuretics etc. which may affect the kidneys is essential. Serum electrolytes, urine for proteins and ultrasound test may be useful for detecting the cause. Any test result should be correlated clinically. It is best to clarify your concerns with your treating doctor. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
