    What Is The Normal GFR Value for Well Functioning KidneyGlomerular Filtration Rate is an important reflection of patient’s renal condition. For patients with kidney disease, when their kidney function is damaged by their disease, their GFR level will reduce gradually in this process.

    What can we know from GFR?

    Kidney disease is divided into 5 stages according to patient’s GFR, and the lower GFR patient has, the later stage patient is in.

    In fact, our kidneys have strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. That is also to say, if patient’s GFR has not been reduced obviously, patient will not have severe health problem.

    For healthy people, their normal GFR level can reach 120ml/min, and the GFR of stage 3 CKD is 30~59ml/min. That is also to say, patients usually have no obvious health problem if they are in stage 1 or 2, and they begin to have health problems when they have stage 3 CKD. Patient’s condition will be more severer in stage 4 and stage 5.

    What is the normal GFR value for welling functioning kidney?

    As we have said, for patients with kidney disease, their GFR level can reach 120ml/min, and that is namely the normal GFR level for healthy people. Or we can treat 60ml/min as the normal GFR level of a well functioning kidney.

    However, GFR can be affected by many factors, so it can not always stay in the maximal value. As a matter of fact, patient’s GFR is in the range of stage 1, it will be thought in its normal range, which means patient’s GFR is higher than 90ml/min.

    But CKD is a progressive disease, and patient’s kidney function will be damaged gradually, and patient’s GFR will also go down in this process.
