    Doctors don’t necessarily tell you that something is heading the wrong way, especially when you are within the normal range. For example, an Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) number under 60 means your kidneys are at stage 3 for kidney disease; however, if you have an eGFR of 60 and above, you are considered within the normal range. But you should be taking care of your kidneys so that you don’t slide into the bad stages and don’t have issues when you are in your 50s, 60s, and later. It is taken as a given that your eGFR will slide down as you age. But if your speed is fast, you may want to pay attention and change your eating habits to stop the downward slide.

    What other test should everyone look for to ascertain direction and speed of progression?
