A lot depends on her age, and any chronic and ongoing conditions that might tend to advance renal disease. (A GFR of 30 means different things for a person in their 20's versus a person in their 70's.)

The fact that it seems to be stable is a very good sign, but it is significantly lower than would be 'ideal' for an otherwise healthy person. And so it needs close monitoring, preferably by a board certified nephrologist.
