From: Screening for chronic kidney disease in rural Malawi: results from a diabetic clinic

Stages of eGFR eGFR (ml/min/1.73 m2) N (%)
Normal EGFRa ≥ 90 90 (60.8)
G1 (normal and urine protein 2+ or more) ≥ 90 2 (1.4)
G2 (mildly decreased) 60–89 38 (25.7)
G3a (mildly to moderately decreased) 45–59 9 (6.1)
G3b (moderately to severely decreased) 30–44 6 (4.1)

G5 (kidney failure) < 15 1 (0.7)
Total   148 (100)
  1. aPatients in this category had eGFR over 90 and protein less than 2+
