How are you? What other symptoms are present? The glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is a test used to check how well the kidneys are working. According to the National Kidney Foundation, normal results range from 90 - 120 mL/min/1.73 m2. Older people will have lower normal GFR levels, because GFR decreases with age. While normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories, it is highly recommended that you talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results. Factors such as your medical and family history, symptoms present, results of other tests are important considerations, Take care and do keep us posted.
