Your kidneys play a vital part in your overall health, removing waste from the body & filtering the blood. In addition to reabsorbing water, glucose, & amino acids, the kidneys also produce hormones that control blood pressure, red blood cell production, & bone health. Our kidney health test can tell you whether or not your kidneys are functioning optimally. The test evaluates your levels of creatinine, urea, & potassium, allowing a doctor to evaluate the presence of any kidney diseases, stones, infections, or cancers. The most common conditions affecting the kidneys include renal cysts, chronic kidney disease, nephritic syndromes, urinary tract obstruction or infection, & kidney stones.
When should I get tested?
You can have this test at any time, although it may specifically be recommended to you by a doctor if you are noticing symptoms related to some of the many vital bodily functions that the kidneys regulate, including hydration, electrolyte levels, the balance of water in the body, blood pressure, bone health, & blood toxicity.
