You might see the eGFR column empty in the blood result section and this might be one of the most interesting results for you if you’re not on dialysis. It is empty due to a glitch in the system. So to calculate your eGFR use the calculator at: http://nephron.org/mdrd_gfr_si and enter the information you can get from Renal Patient View (your latest creatinine result which is in μmol/L, so leave this option selected). Leave "Creatinine methods recalibrated to be traceable to IDMS" unchecked. Please note that eGFR calculators differ slightly and the result might be 1 or 2 points different from another calculator. But it is still good enough to give you a trend of what is happening.
