Glomerular Filtration Rate: When your Kidney Number, eGFR, is the wrong thing to focus on
Episode 173:Glomerular Filtration Rate: When your Kidney Number, eGFR, is the wrong thing to focus on. Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) is the best test to estimate your level of kidney function and determine your stage of kidney disease. Your doctor can calculate it from the results of your blood creatinine test, your age, body size, and gender. Your eGFR tells your doctor your stage of kidney disease and helps the doctor plan your treatment - but it isn't always the right number to be focused on. Dr. Rosansky discusses WHEN your eGFR is the wrong number to focus on and explains what you should be focusing on (such as protein leakage). Dr. Rosansky is a retired Nephrologist and author of the book Learn The Facts About Kidney Disease.
