Renal (Kidney) Function Panel

A Renal Function Panel (Kidney Function Test) is a common health screening used to help detect conditions affecting the kidneys. It can also be used to monitor people who are receiving treatment for illnesses affecting the kidneys.

A Renal Panel includes the following tests:

  • Glucose: Abnormal blood sugar levels can indicate a number of conditions including Diabetes. Over time, high glucose levels can damage the kidneys.
  • BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen): A waste product filtered through the kidneys.  Used to evaluate kidney function.
  • Creatinine: A waste product produced by the muscles which is filtered through the kidneys.  Used to Evaluate Kidney Function.
  • BUN/Creatinine Ratio: This measurement can indicate kidney disease or conditions such as dehydration or intestinal bleeding.
  • Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR): The amount of blood filtered by the kidneys.  Used to screen for and detect early kidney damage.
  • Calcium: Normal levels are important for healthy bones, heart, nerves, kidneys, and teeth.
  • Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Carbon Dioxide, Total: An improper electrolyte balance can indicate a number of conditions including dehydration, Addison's disease, kidney disease, and Diabetes.
  • Albumin: A protein important for healthy liver and kidney function.
  • Phosphorus: Low levels of phosphorus can be indicative of a number of illnesses while high levels may be a symptom of kidney failure.

This panel is typically ordered as part of a general health screening. It may also be ordered when someone has symptoms which may indicate kidney disease or is being treated for kidney disease.

Customers looking for a more comprehensive screening can order a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP). A CMP includes all of the components of a Renal Panel except Phosphorus.

Turnaround time for the Renal Function Panel is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.


The Renal Function Panel requires fasting for 12 hours prior to going in for blood collection.
