Maxine Posted October 12, 2007 Report Share Posted October 12, 2007 My estimated GFR (Glomerular Filtration rate) is 81, and the normal referance range for my age is 99.I looked it up and this is what I found.http://www.kidney.org/kidneydisease/ckd/knowGFR.cfm#charthttp://www.anaemiaworld.com/portal/eipf/pb...gfr_calculator#I picked up the test results myself today from the hospital lab that took my test on Saturday.This blood work was done to measure lead levels in blood, so a lead panel was done along with some other blood tests. The was NO lead found. Back in March of 2001 high levels of lead were found in my URINE.I don't know why the blood is being tested, as the blood life for lead is 35 day. My exposure was back in 2000/2001.I don't have high blood pressure, as my BP is very low from my POTS and EDS. In fact Saturday evening I got a reading of 100/66 sitting, and 73/55 standing------ . So it's not high BP causing problems with kidneys. Diet is good, and I'm not terriby overweight. I'm not diebetic, as my glucose levels were great @ 96.I don't get it. I have not talked with the doctor yet, as I picked up the results, and probably saw them before he did.Not sure what to think here. Has anyone had this happen to them? Any kidney issues?Maxine :0) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
