Hi, my last 2 metabolic panels showed GFR Est-Other 56

Hi, my last 2 metabolic panels showed GFR Est-Other 56 which triggered the scan results below. I also have noticed some burning sensations below my back rib cage if I drink alcohol. I have a consultation with a nephrologist in a month. What should I discuss with her and can you give some ideas of what is going on. Thank you.
