Kidney Function Test in London

Kidney Blood Test or Renal Function Test

Kidneys are small organs in your body about the size of a fist. They are situated below the ribcage and either side of the spine. The kidneys have a vital role to play in the human body. The kidneys help to control the waste in the body and ensure that the body is maintaining the level of essential nutrients it needs. London can put you in contact with the leading private healthcare clinics in London to get a kidney function test. These tests are carried out using a urine and blood sample. This will enable the doctor to diagnose the root cause of any issues you may be suffering with. A kidney function test may be performed when the patient has high blood pressure and diabetes.

How to detect kidney problems

You may want to book a kidney function test when you experience the following symptoms:

  • High blood pressure
  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Blood in urine
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Painful urination
  • Swollen feet and hands due to accumulation of fluid

You may want to visit a private healthcare clinic near you to get tested and diagnose any condition you may have accurately. Accordingly, the doctor will provide a treatment plan to manage the symptoms and your condition.

Types of Kidney Function Tests you have access to:

  • Urinalysis- It checks the proteins and blood traces in urine.
  • Serum Creatinine Test- This ensures that no creatinine build up is in the blood.
  • Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN)- It will determine the amount of waste product present in the blood.
  • Estimated GFR- It assesses the efficiency of the kidneys to filter out wastes. This takes into account height, weight, race, age, gender and creatinine level.

What to expect from the Kidney Function Test?

A urine sample and blood sample taken over the last 24 hours are required to carry out the tests. For this you need to urinate first in the morning in the toilet and for the rest of the day you will need to urinate in a container. A Phlebotomist will collect the blood sample by inserting the needle into the vein of arm near elbow. On receiving the result, your doctor will interpret it in a follow-up appointment with you offering correct treatment for the diagnosis.
