My GFR rate is 56, but all others kidney functions are normal. What does this mean? I am 82 yrs old.

You have early Stage 3 chronic kidney disease if this estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) has been present for more than 3 months. You should continue to have regular measurements at least every 6 months and continue to follow your physician’s advice about diet, exercise and blood pressure control.
