eGFR for none african m tresult 98mg , units 1.73 refrance interval >59
Hey there, I just happen to be a lab tech! :) To me it looks as though everything looks great except for the creatinine. I'm just not sure how your getting 98 for the eGFR though. According to my calculations being a 40 yr old male, non african with a creatinine of 1.7 your eGFR would be 45. Which is low, and according to chronic kidney disease staging guidlines would put you at stage 3 CKD. Also, do you have any specific questions regarding any of those labs? Good luck!
hiiii first i wanna say thank you so much for your reply.
the eGFR for none African male (my results are) 98ml/min/1.73 reference interval >59 is it still stage 3? how is it calculated? whats my next step? should i get health coverage right away? stage 3 means? (in terms of - how saver it is?)
