GFR - Glomerular Filtration Rate

What is GFR?

GFR - Glomerular Filtration Rate is the best test to measure your level of kidney function and determine your stage of kidney disease. Your doctor can calculate it from the results of your blood creatinine test, your age, race, gender and other factors. The earlier kidney disease is detected, the better the chance of slowing or stopping its progression.

Blood is drawn from a vein, usually from the inside of the elbow or the back of the hand. The site is cleaned with germ-killing medicine (antiseptic). The health care provider wraps an elastic band around the upper arm to apply pressure to the area and make the vein swell with blood. Next, the health care provider gently inserts a needle into the vein. The blood collects into an airtight vial or tube attached to the needle. The elastic band is removed from your arm. Once the blood has been collected, the needle is removed, and the puncture site is covered to stop any bleeding.

In infants or young children, a sharp tool called a lancet may be used to puncture the skin and make it bleed. The blood collects into a small glass tube called a pipette, or onto a slide or test strip. A bandage may be placed over the area if there is any bleeding.

The blood sample is sent to a lab, where the creatinine level is tested. The lab specialist uses combines your creatinine level with several other factors to estimate your glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Different formulas are used for adults and children.

The formula will include some or all of the following:

  • Age
  • Creatinine measurement
  • Gender
  • Height
  • Race
  • Weight

Certain drugs can interfere with test results. Tell your doctor about all medicines you are taking, including over-the-counter ones. When the needle is inserted to draw blood, some people feel moderate pain, while others feel only a prick or stinging sensation. Afterward, there might be some throbbing.

The GFR test measures how well your kidneys are filtering a waste called creatinine, which is produced by the muscles. When the kidneys aren't working as well as they should, creatinine builds up in the blood. Your doctor may order this test if there are signs that your kidneys are not working properly. It may also be done to see how far kidney disease has progressed.

The test is recommended for people with chronic kidney disease and those at risk for it due to:

  • Diabetes
  • Family history of kidney disease
  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Urinary blockage
