What does the medical abbreviation gfr African am mean?

The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is calculated a little differently for African-American patients. This is because African Americans have more muscle mass than other groups. Some doctors and labs do not use your race when finding your eGFR. Ask your doctor or lab if they used your race when they did your eGFR. If they did not, you will need to multiply your eGFR result by 1.2 if you're African American, or ask your doctor to do it for you.

Patients with kidney disease suffer from anemia?

Yes, patients with chronic kidney disease can be anemic. It is thought that decreased levels of erythropoietin from the diseased kidney result in lower hemoglobin and hematocrit. Specifically, from NHANES: the prevalence of anemia was 1% in patients with eGFR of 60 mL/min (higher is better for estimation of kidney function), patients with eGFR of 30 mL/min had a prevalence of 9%, and eGFR of 15 mL/min had up to 67%. Other causes of anemia should be worked ruled out before you and your primary care physician pursue increasing or supplementing erythropoietin.
