Kidney Function Blood Testing
Kidneys play an essential part in sustaining our overall health and wellbeing. They filter the blood, maintain fluid balance, help control blood pressure, and aid the production of urine (which eliminates waste from the body). Kidneys also play an important role in the production of red blood cells and converting vitamin D into the active form that the body can use.
Kidney function tests are generally undertaken with a simple blood test which can even be done at home with a home test kit. They are ideal for monitoring your kidney function or simply checking in on it to ensure that they are working effectively as part of reviewing your overall health.
