    I am very satisfied with the company and regularly load my blood tests. The only pity is that you don't get a confirmation when the blood has arrived. That would be an added value...

    Product Description

    Kidney research

    You often notice that something is wrong with your kidneys when they are only working 30% of the time, so it is important to have your kidney function checked from time to time.

    This blood and urine test consists of:

    • creatinine
    • urea
    • albumin
    • GFR (MDRD) CK - DEPI
    • urine status

    Estimation of renal function using the MDRD formula to detect impaired renal function and earlier diagnosis of renal failure. It is calculated based on the blood tests creatinine, urea and albumin value, gender and age.

    The kidneys are very important to human health because they remove breakdown products and harmful substances from the blood. When the kidneys are not working properly due to disease, these substances accumulate in the body.

    Kidney problems occur in various diseases.

    Some drugs are removed from the body by the kidneys.
    There may be a kidney problem because the kidneys are not filtering blood properly. It may also be that the blood flow through the kidneys is not good. This occurs, for example, in dehydration, heart problems, stress, severe burns, blockages in the urinary tract, and after a heart attack. The urea value can also be slightly elevated after a protein-rich meal.

    In addition, a slightly elevated urea value often occurs in pregnancy. This is not a problem. Often a lowered urea value (< 2.5 mmol/L) does not mean anything, but it can also be that the liver is not working properly and the breakdown of proteins is disturbed. In that case, specific tests are needed to examine liver function. Urea is not used for testing liver function. A lowered urea value can also indicate malnutrition, which means the body is not getting enough protein.
