GFR Calculator(Glomerular Filtration Rate)

The kidneys are bean-shaped organs located on the dorsal side of the abdominal cavity. Each kidney is made of millions of tiny units called nephrons that help in the filtration process. When the kidneys are fully functional, they filter out waste and excess fluids that become a part of the urine the body makes each day. When there is a slight change in the function of kidneys, the wastes and fluids are not eliminated completely, which may lead to health issues. The Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) helps us estimate how healthy and functional the kidneys are. A low GFR indicates kidney disease and should be rectified immediately.
