    GFR - glomerular filtration rate is the best test to measure your level of kidney function and determine your stage of kidney disease. Your doctor can calculate it from the results of your blood creatinine test, your age, race, gender and other factors.
    The earlier kidney disease is detected, the better the chance of slowing or stopping its progression.
