What is "EGFR" on a blood test? It is a measure of Kidney function, but what function.

Mine has been steady at 54, 56, 57, but now has dropped to 49. The only indication says it should be >59

What Kidney disease is this a sign of?

looks like it is not an indicator of any one disease, just overall kidney function.
