How long can a person who is not a dialysis candidate survive with an eGFR of 7?

I am unable to provide a prognosis without performing a complete history and physical examination.  An estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 7 milliliters per minute per 1.73 meters squared is a very low level of kidney function.  I suggest that you consult with the physician who is caring for this patient.
