What Does eGFR level Stand For?

In medical reports, there can be several numbers related to kidney health. Those concerned about their kidney health should look at the eGFR level for the most accurate reading. eGFR is short for the estimated glomerular filtration rate. It measures the total filtration rates of functioning units called “nephrons” in the kidney. It indicates how well the kidney can filter wastes out of the body. The eGFR level can’t be measured directly. It is calculated by a formula that uses serum creatinine and some demographic factors such as age and gender.


Monitoring the eGFR level helps in detecting kidney problems and its severity. In general, a higher eGFR level means better kidney functions. In contrast, a lower eGFR level means the kidney is not working properly. But what is a normal eGFR level? What does the number indicate?


1. Most healthy people have an eGFR ≥ 90mL/min/1.73 m2. Without kidney damage, an eGFR between 60 – 90mL/min/1.73 m2may also be considered normal for the elderly and infants. 

2. eGFR of 60 – 90mL/min/1.73 m2for more than 3 months, along with kidney damage, indicates early kidney problems. 

3. eGFR 60 mL/min/1.73 m2for more than 3 months indicates chronic kidney problems.

“After considering the drugs that Western medicine offered for my CKD Stage 3, I decided they gave me too little benefit versus 'side effects'. Research led me to DTS kidney support, and Kampo medicine in general. I did PhD work in History & Philosophy of Science. This therapy has had powerful and measurable beneficial effects. It is my main therapy. I highly recommend it.” - From DTS verified buyer David   Kampo is a traditional Japa
Welcome back to our FAQ session! Should someone stop using DTS after a while? Should one continue taking DTS after he gets better? This is a question we often get asked. And in many cases, it is better to adjust or lower the dosage after improvement and to continue taking DTS than stopping and starting.   Unlike medication, DTS is not a quick fix to kidney problems. It is not medicine at all. DTS is a natural supplement. It gradually balances and regulates our body sy

Using creatinine as an indication of kidney function level is common, but just this number alone is not the optimal way to monitor kidney health nor to detect early kidney problems. According to professional recommendations, using an eGFR level is a more accurate indication of kidney health.   Creatinine is a by-product generated from protein metabolism. Therefore, muscle mass and diet can affect creatinine generation. For example, a muscular person or a person who cr
A study conducted in 2016 has shown that extracts from different parts of Eucommia, such as bark, stem, and seeds, contain health-promoting properties. Here are some examples:   1. Eucommia bark extract demonstrates an antihypertensive effect, confirmed by many human and animal models. 2. Under vivo and vitro studies, Eucommia has established strong antioxidant properties. 3.
