eGFR Results

My 24 year old daughter has experienced several bladder/kidney infections over the past 4 years.  In a routine blood work-up, her eGFR measured 59.  I am worried because that appears to be low and an indicator of possible "chronic kidney disease".  Could anything have affected the results of this test (ie UTI at the time of the blood work)?  I would appreciate information, or advice, from anyone who may be familiar with kidney issues.  The doctor either overlooked the number or did not find it to be alarming because the results were marked "Normal".
