Kidney Profile

This easy-to-implement finger prick test will measure how well the kidneys are functioning overall.



About the test

This finger prick blood test assesses important kidney markers, and is useful for those who may show signs or symptoms of impaired kidney function, such as reduced urination, fluid retention or irregular heartbeat. 

The markers include Total Protein, which is the sum of albumin and globulin in the blood, and the levels of waste products in the blood such as urea and creatinine, which are filtered by the kidneys. 

It also measures sodium levels, and a Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation is used to calculate the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) from serum creatinine. This measures the amount of blood filtered through the kidneys to assess performance. 

It’s also suitable for anyone who would like to investigate their health for overall wellbeing.
