Glomerular Filtration Rate

Glomerular Filtration Rate, the measure of kidney function is the test to describe the flow rate of filtered fluid (how much blood passes) from glomerular capillaries into bowman’s capsule of the kidney. Glomeruli of kidney purifies blood. GFR is calculated by creatinine filtration rate.

Glomerular filtration rate(GFR) is testing , how well the kidneys are working. It estimates how much blood passes through the glomeruli  per minute specifically. Glomeruli are present in kidneys to filter waste from the blood.Early kidney damage and kidney status can be screened and detected by eGFR. It is done by a creatinine test and calculating the estimated glomerular filtration rate. A GFR under 60 mL/min/1.73 m² may mean kidney disease-the lower the GFR number, the worse the kidney function.In some cases, GFR may also be estimated with a 24-hour urine collection.
