Nephrologist eGFR 82
I am 70 years old Male. I went through one blood test and found that my AVERAGE BLOOD GLUCOSE (ABG) is 206 and HbA1c is 8.8%, so my doctor (diabetician) prescribed me medicine and mild exercise. She also mentioned that the value of EST. GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE (eGFR) is 82, so I should check this value with Nephrologist as I am old aged. Please suggest if you think this value is high and if my Kidneys are not okay as per this report?
