Hello and hope you are doing well.

Was a GFR (glomerular filtration rate) done? Various stages of kidney disease are based on this. 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. When the GFR falls below 15, it is defined as kidney failure and then dialysis is the option. Until then managing the hypertension, diabetes, bone problems and anemia form the basis of therapy. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
