ESTIMATED GFR Reference Range:
GFR = Greater than or equal to 90: Normal or increased GFR.
GFR = 60-89: Mild decreased GFR.
GFR = 30-59: Moderate decreased GFR.
GFR = 15-29: Severe decreased GFR.
GFR = Less than 15: Kidney Failure.

When found over a three month period, GFR less than 60 indicates Chronic Kidney Disease.

GFR calculation is not valid for patients under age 18 years.

Please note: the equation for eGFR calculation has been updated to the 2021 CKD-EPI Creatinine equation as recommended by the National Kidney Foundation and Association for Diagnostics and Laboratory Medicine.
