Your longevity guide to eGFR. Gain deeper insights into your health.

Mito Health provides comprehensive biomarker analysis covering 67 key biomarkers. Our detailed reports offer insights into various aspects of your health, helping you make informed decisions.

What is eGFR?

eGFR, or Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate, is a measure used to assess kidney function. Specifically, it estimates how well the kidneys are filtering waste products from the blood. The glomeruli, tiny filters in the kidneys, play a crucial role in this process by removing waste and excess fluids, which are then excreted as urine. 

eGFR reflects how efficiently your kidneys are cleaning your blood, similar to the way a filter purifies water. A higher eGFR indicates better kidney function, while a lower eGFR suggests potential kidney impairment.

How it’s related to your healthspan

eGFR is directly linked to overall healthspan and longevity as it serves as a marker for kidney health. Healthy kidneys are essential for maintaining fluid balance, filtering waste products, regulating blood pressure, and producing hormones that help produce red blood cells and keep bones strong. 

A declining eGFR can indicate chronic kidney disease (CKD), which is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, and mortality. It also correlates with a higher likelihood of developing other health conditions like diabetes and hypertension. 

Monitoring eGFR regularly can help detect kidney dysfunction early, allowing for interventions to slow progression and preserve kidney function. 

How to optimise your eGFR results

Optimising eGFR levels involves adopting a lifestyle that supports kidney health. 

First and foremost, maintaining a balanced diet low in sodium and processed foods can help manage blood pressure and reduce strain on the kidneys. Incorporating plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins supports overall kidney function. Staying hydrated is crucial, as it helps the kidneys flush out toxins more effectively. 

If diagnosed with CKD or at risk, medications to control blood pressure and manage blood sugar levels may be necessary, under the guidance of a healthcare professional. Regular check-ups and monitoring of eGFR are essential to detect any changes early and take appropriate actions.
