  • Understanding Number Discrepancy

    I am 65 and my last blood test showed my creatinine at 1.17 and my eGFR at 50. When I enter my creatinine, age, gender & ethnicity into the calculator here it puts my GFR at 32. I don't understand ... is there a difference between eGFR and GFR. Can someone explain please? Thank you.

    You may want to try the GFR Calculator again. Using the data you provided and guessing sex to be female, race non-African American, the result I get is 49%. A higher result is calculated when I change race and sex. The DaVita calculator is an eGFR result which is based on age, sex, creatinine and race.

      Yes ... 50% is what my last bloodwork showed, I don't want to be 32% ... yikes! Nope, I went back and did it again selections 65, female, non-african and it comes back at 32% and says Stage 3a ... but I don't think 32% would be Stage 3a. Is the calculator messed up?

        Is the creatinine 1.17? I am still getting 49% with the above data.
