Different tests give different results. The GFR is the definative test but takes a day. Creatinine levels are more commonly used to estimate GFR around here. The local lab for some reason had my height at 5' 9" and 135 Lbs. so converting the creatinine level to GFR gave very bad results.

As to a transplant around here that is an option until age 85!

As I suspect you have been informed a common cause of kidney failure is an enlarged prostate blocking urine flow causing a backup, damaging the kidneys.

Best of luck.

Get well soon, Richard.

My uncle was on a dialysis machine for 15 years having a good life.
It was in France where the health care system provided a small
briefcase size home machine. He did not have to go to a hospital.
