The Irish Nephrology Society currently recommends classifying Chronic Kidney Disease into five stages based on a measure estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). eGFR is a test that is used to assess how well your kidneys are working. It is based on age, sex, and blood creatinine level.

 

CKD Stage eGFR
1 >90ml/min/1.73m2
2 60-89ml/min/1.73m2
3 30-59ml/min/1.73m2
4 15-29ml/min/1.73m2
5 <15ml/min/1.73m2
