    This is exactly what you should do, see a specialist and hopefully they can get you on the right track.

    While your eGFR is averaging below 60, estimating GFR with creatinine-based equations can substantially underestimate GFR. This is due to the relationship between serum creatinine and muscular mass which may be skewing the interpretation of eGFR. In other words carrying muscle like you do can increase serum creatinine levels to the high side, and the estimated GFR is falsely low.

    Of course a specialist needs to determine if that is the case. Check out the link below.

    I have had my eGFR hovering between 52 and 59 over the past 4 years and was referred to a kidney specialist last year who determined my kidneys are in normal range so that's good (but lightened my wallet by a couple grand after insurance). Most lab tests don't really take into account other factors like mentioned, and it took a specialized test (not fully covered by insurance) to determine the true eGFR which was around 64. Not bad for someone my age.

    @REHH, you should look into a kidney specialist referral to help settle this one for you.
