Kidney Check Blood Test
Is it for you?
Key biomarkers - see full list below
- You are in a higher risk group and you want to check your kidney function
- You want a general health check that includes a kidney function test
- You have been diagnosed with kidney disease and want to monitor your kidneys
- You have been diagnosed with diabetes and want to check how well your kidneys are functioning
Chronic kidney disease can progress over many years with few signs or symptoms that can be specifically related to kidney function, especially in its early stages. Symptoms that can indicate kidney disease include swollen feet and ankles, high blood pressure and changes in how frequently you urinate. Some groups of people are at higher risk of developing kidney disease; they include people of African descent, smokers, the obese, the elderly and people with diabetes.
Please not that this test is designed to be sent in the post and therefore excludes some biomarkers which are not stable in the post. If you have been advised to get a kidney function test by your doctor then please contact our customer services team who can arrange a test which includes sodium and potassium.
