Who should take the test?
Your kidneys are a vital part of your health. They remove wastes from the body, clean your bodily fluids. Every minute, about one liter enters the kidneys and is cleaned there, before flowing back into the body. Your kidney function test results reflect how well your kidneys are working. Abnormal kidney function can cause accumulation of waste products in the body, which can lead to fatigue, headaches, nausea, and more.
With our Kidney Function Test your kidney status will be determined based on the following markers:
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Creatinine (CREAT)
How does it work?
You collect a dried blood spot sample from the comfort of your home, send it to our lab and will receive the lab results, including detailed information about your kidney health markers.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
After the analysis was conducted, you will receive a lab report with explanations about the analyzed markers as well as information about possible symptoms that can occur when there is an imbalance. Further to that, we always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner.
Although we do not offer medical advice ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
