GFR is used to check how well your kidneys are functioning.It estimates how much blood passes through tiny filters in kidneys each minute.Normal results of GFR range from 90-120mL/min/1.73m2.The elderly have lower normal GFR levels because GFR declines with age. Now your GFR is far lower than the normal range.A large part of your blood can not be filtered by kidneys,thus resulting in high levels of wastes in your body.

Your fatigue and weakness is mainly associated with anemia.Anemia is a common complication of Kidney Disease.It is mainly attributed to two causes.Firstly,the diseased kidneys can not make a kind of hormone called EPO which can stimulate the marrow to produce red blood cells. Secondly,iron deficiency is another cause of anemia in kidney disease. High-protein diet is an important source of irone.However, the patients with reduced renal function have to limit protein intake strictly.
