Estimated GFR (eGFR)
eGFR is not validated for use in children <18 years old, acute renal failure, pregnancy, oedematous states, muscle wasting disease states, amputees or malnourished patients
Estimated GFR (eGFR) ml/min/1.73m2
>90 Indicates normal GFR, unless there is a structural abnormality or a functional abnormality such as persistent proteinuria or microscopic haematuria.
60-89 Does not indicate chronic kidney disease unless there is other existing laboratory/clinical evidence of disease.
30-59 Indicates moderate renal impairment. Consider monitoring eGFR 6 monthly.
15-29 Indicates established renal impairment. Consider monitoring eGFR monthly.
15-30 <15 Indicates established renal failure. Consider monitoring eGFR 3 monthly.
For African-Caribbean people only – eGFR should be multipled by 1.212
