I’m 45 and my GFR 116. What does that mean for a man of my age?

A estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is approximately the percentage of kidney function.  In your case an eGFR of 116 milliliters per minute per 1.73 meters squared in a normal result.  You can learn more about the eGFR at our web site at:  https://www.kidney.org/professionals/KDOQI/gfr
