About the Test

Your kidneys play a vital role in keeping your body healthy and functioning properly. The main function of the kidneys is to remove waste products and excess fluid from the blood and excrete them in the urine. This process is known as filtration, and it helps to keep the blood free of toxins. The kidneys also manage fluid levels in the body, control electrolyte concentrations in the blood, regulate blood pressure, and stimulate red blood cell production.

Measure your blood creatinine levels, urine creatinine levels, eGFR levels, albumin levels, and provides your Albumin/Creatinine urine ratio. These measurements indicate your kidneys’ ability to filter waste and toxins. This profile helps identify your risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) and in the diagnosis, staging, or monitoring of CKD.
