Important Medical Information

What is a Kidney Function Test?
Your kidneys are part of your urinary system. They are necessary for the production of:

  • Blood pressure-regulating hormones
  • Red blood cells, which transport oxygen throughout the body
  • Vitamin D, which is essential for bone and muscular function

Your kidneys also act as a complex filtration system to remove excess fluid and waste (toxins) from your body. By measuring some of the waste products in your blood (creatine and urea) you can determine how effectively your kidneys are functioning. If these are elevated, further investigations may be advised.

A single finger prick blood test is taken by you at home using the kit provided.

Who is the Kidney Home Test Suitable For?
Kidney Home Tests are suitable for:

  • Anyone over the age of 18 years
Why Should I take a Kidney Function Test?
Regular testing helps you to track your health and any underlying conditions.

You should monitor your kidney function frequently if you have the following conditions:

  • High blood pressure
  • Cardiovascular disease (heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease)
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease e.g. chronic kidney disease or a history of acute kidney injury
  • Other conditions that can affect the kidneys e.g. lupus, enlarged prostate, kidney stones
  • If you take medications that can affect the kidneys

If you have any of the following symptoms or you are concerned, please arrange a face-to-face assessment with a doctor. This screening service is NOT suitable for you.

  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swollen ankles, feet or hands (new onset)
  • Blood in the urine (hematuria)
Why Should I Order a Cholesterol, Kidney and Thyroid Test?
A comprehensive Cholesterol, Kidney and Thyroid Test evaluates the functioning of some of your vital body systems. A small sample of blood is used to carry out these tests.

An elevated cholesterol level may be an important modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease and may indicate that you should take action to improve this.

Knowing your thyroid function will likewise enable appropriate treatment in the event that the gland is under or overactive.

Finally, kidney function can identify how efficiently the kidneys are filtering excess fluids and toxins from your body. The kidneys also play an important role in cardiovascular health. If there is a problem, early intervention provides better outcomes.

Factors that increase your chance for heart or kidney disease:

  • Diabetes
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Being overweight or obese
