Glomerular filtration rate is considered by nephrologists and other kidney care professionals to be the best measure of kidney function. Knowing someone's GFR lets a physician figure out the person's stage of kidney disease to help plan their treatment. There are five stages of chronic kidney disease. Stages 4 and 5 are the late stages of chronic kidney disease. Stage 5 chronic kidney disease indicates a patient's kidneys are no longer functioning and dialysis or a kidney transplant are necessary to maintain life.

Health care professionals, or those who want to calculate a GFR, can download the DaVita GFR Calculator from the Apple iTunes App Store for 99 cents. In addition, the application allows someone to search for a nephrologist, educational websites and the toll-free DaVita phone number. Use of the DaVita GFR Calculator for iPhone or iPod Touch requires the following: Apple iPhone(TM) or iPod(TM) touch device Internet access on a Mac or PC computer Apple iTunes(TM) installed on a local computer (http://www.apple.com/itunes/).
