    For healthy people, their GFR level can reach 120ml/min, while CKD will damage patient’s kidney function gradually, and patient’s GFR will become lower and lower.

    For patients with stage 3 CKD, their GFR range is 30~59ml/min, which means more than half normal kidney function is damaged at this point.
