Millions of people have the biggest risk factors for kidney disease:
Age “There’s some debate about whether a small decline in kidney function is part of normal aging or whether it’s a pathologic loss of kidney function,” says Geoffrey Block, associate clinical professor in medicine at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. A normal GFR (glomerular filtration rate) is 90 or above, but some doctors consider 60 or above normal for older people. “Age is a very good predictor of risk,” notes Block. “There’s no stronger risk factor for kidney disease than age.”
