A kidney function screen is one of the most important screening assessments that should be monitored. Your kidneys are important since they filter waste from your body and regulate the salts in your blood. Most people who are affected with kidney disease are unaware they have a potentially life threatening disease. However, from a simple blood test, the kidney function screen can detect abnormalities related to your kidney function and be managed appropriately which means deterioration in kidney function can be reduced by as much as 50% and may even be reversible.
Your blood supply circulates through the kidneys about 12 times every hour, and the kidneys make urine from excess fluid and unwanted chemicals or waste in your blood.
Why are your kidneys so important?
- They are responsible in filtering your blood to remove any unwanted wastes.
- They control your blood pressure and maintain an optimal blood pressure score.
- They maintain your water balance which makes your urine.
- Supports essential vitamins for muscles and overall health.
