What Does GFR 47 with Creatinine 2.28 IndicateBoth GFR (glomerular filtration rate) and creatinine are indications of how well your kidneys are working. If your GFR is 47 with creatinine 2.28, you should be concerned about this result. This article will explain the reasons to you.

What is GFR and creatinine?

As mentioned in the first paragraph, GFR refers to the rate of waste or toxic substances leak from the body through glomeruli. Creatinine is such a waste product, which forms during muscle metabolism.

Why should I concern about this result?

For healthy people, the creatinine level is 0.5-1.1mg/dl for female and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male. You can see that creatinine 2.28 is higher than the normal range. Our kidneys have a strong compensatory ability, and the creatinine level won’t increase until 50% kidney function has lost. Creatinine 2.28 indicates that the kidney function has lost 50-70%. Therefore, you should pay high attention to this result.

What’s more, GFR can also be taken as an indicator of kidney function. In clinic, chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages based on GFR. The better your kidneys are working, the higher rate of glomerular filtration is. GFR 47 means Stage 3 Kidney Disease with moderately damaged renal function.

In summary, GFR 47 with creatinine 2.28 is a moderate test result. If patients are treated timely and correctly, their kidney function can be improved and Stage 3 Kidney Disease is possibly reversible.

For this situation, if you don’t have some severe or acute symptoms such as swelling, hypertension, itchy skin or vomiting and so on, I don’t recommend you to take medicines immediately.
