How do I know what stage of CKD I am? I was just diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy and Secondary FSGS.

You will need to know your serum creatinine and then use this value to calculate your estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). The eGFR is then used to categorize your stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD). You can review the calculation and the staging system on our web site at:  https://www.kidney.org/professionals/KDOQI/gfr_calculator
