What are Kidney Health Tests for?
Kidneys work hard to keep our blood pure. Kidneys perform various critical tasks like removing body wastes, balancing body fluids, removing drugs, releasing hormones that regulate blood pressure, producing Vitamin D for stronger bones, etc. Medical conditions in which the kidney function declines suddenly are rare. In most of the cases, renal function impairment establishes over the prolonged period of time, little by little. Diagnosing renal function impairment by its symptoms usually means establishing a diagnosis too late (too late to save the kidneys or reverse the pathology). Timely detection of a kidney function decline through electrolytes and kidney function test ensures the successful treatment, although in some cases the damage cannot be reversed, but still the disease can be put under control so its progress is slowed down if not stopped completely.
