Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

We don't interpret lab results for our readers but your "eGFR non African American result of 54.9" result indicates there is kidney disease, likely stage 3.

Stage 3 CKD means a person has stage three chronic kidney disease.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is divided into five stages. The last stage is called end stage renal disease (ESRD) and is usually the time when dialysis or transplant is needed. You doctor would be the one to speak to about your specific condition.
