Kidney Profile, Blood and Urine (Labcorp)
The Kidney Disease Profile includes several blood and urine tests that can help to identify kidney disease. The primary function of the kidneys is to filter waste and toxins out of the blood and remove them from the body in the urine. Simple blood and urine testing can help identify early signs of kidney disease so it can be treated before it causes more severe health complications. Symptoms of kidney disease can include fatigue, difficulty sleeping, dry itchy skin, urinating more frequently than normal, blood in the urine, swollen feet or ankles, and puffiness around the eyes.
The kidney disease blood and urine test includes:
- Creatinine, Blood: Creatinine is a waste product produced by the muscles that is normally filtered out by the kidneys.
- Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR): EGFR measures kidney function based on how well they are removing waste products from the blood.
- Creatinine, Urine: Measuring urine creatinine levels can help determine how efficiently the kidneys are removing waste products from the blood.
- Albumin, Urine: Albumin (protein) in the urine is a sign that the kidneys are not functioning normally.
- Albumin/Creatinine Ratio, Urine: Elevated albumin/creatinine ratio is an indicator of kidney disease.
The kidney profile test is normally ordered when someone is experiencing early signs of kidney failure. This test can also be used to monitor treatment for kidney disease or screen people with diabetes for possible kidney damage.
Turnaround for the Kidney Disease Panel is typically 1-2 business days.
