Your kidneys are responsible for filtering your blood and removing waste products through your urine. They also manage water retention and control ion concentrations and the acid balance in your blood. Your kidneys do this through millions of structures called nephrons and maintaining them is very important for your overall health.

This test will indicate how your kidneys are performing by measuring levels of urea, creatinine and eGFR Glomerular filtration rate. High levels of urea, creatinine and a low eGFR Glomerular filtration rate can indicate acute or chronic kidney disease.

  • What does it test for?

    Urea is a waste product formed from the breakdown of proteins and is passed out in your urine. A high level of urea ('uraemia') indicates that the kidneys may not be working properly or that you have a low body water content (are dehydrated).

    Creatinine is a waste product made by your muscles and dietary protein. Creatinine passes into the bloodstream and is usually passed out in urine. A high blood level of creatinine indicates that the kidneys may not be working properly.

    eGFR: Glomerular filtration rate is a calculation which determines how well your kidneys are filtering blood.

Why getting your kidneys or renal function checked is important

  • 1 in 10 people

    One in ten people are affected by kidney damage in their lifetime. Millions of people die each year from avoidable complications related to chronic kidney disease.

  • Lifestyle choices

    Lifestyle choices such as drinking alcohol, poor diet, taking gym supplements or performance enhancing drugs can accelerate your chances of developing kidney damage or chronic kidney disease.

  • Early detection is vital

    Kidney damage or chronic disease can be symptomless and early detection is critical to avoiding long term consequences which can include dialysis, kidney transplant or the onset of cardiovascular disease.
