Tests for Kidney Disease

Kidney disease often has no symptoms until it is very far along.  The only way to know how your kidneys are working is to get tested.  This is very important for people who have diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of kidney disease.

If you catch and treat kidney disease early, you may be able to slow it down. Ask your doctor about tests to check your kidneys.

Types of Tests
