Normal eGFR in Australia is > 90ml/min/1.73m^2. > 60 will get flagged but below that you start getting smaller numbers which indicates kidney problems. You can find GFR (glomeral filtration rate) calculators online which adjust that amount (eGFR) (estimated GFR) to a better estimate GFR.

You just need serum creatinine level, age and sex; e.g. mine is >90, after calculation it is 122mL/minute/1.73m^2.
