    Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR)

    I got some bloodwork done and in the reference range column for eGFR it says

    "For patients of African descent, the reported
    eGFR must be multiplied by 1.15."

    I'm half African, and I can't find any information on whether or not the 1.15 multiplier applies to me, or if I disregard, or if I'm suppose to multiply by 0.575 instead.

    My google skills have room for improvement
