Know Your Numbers: Keep track of your kidney health
Kidney disease often has no symptoms until it is very far along, so it's important to get tested as part of your regular checkups. This is very important for people who have diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of kidney disease.
You can keep track of all your important kidney health numbers with the free Kidney Health Tracker from the American Kidney Fund. This handy card gives basic information about the risks and tests for kidney disease. It also lets you compare your lab results to the normal results for several common blood tests.
