According to the National Kidney Foundation, one in nine adults have kidney disease – which is over 26 million Americans. Many do not know they have, or at risk of having, kidney disease. To find whether or not you or your loved ones have kidney disease, follow the recommended three tests. One of the most common causes for kidney disease is high blood pressure, and knowing whether your number is high is vital in lowering your risks of kidney disease. Protein in urine is one of the earliest signs of kidney disease, especially for diabetics, thus a urinalysis is also one of the recommended tests. Finally, the Glomerular filtration rate is able to determine how well the kidney is working to remove waste from your blood, and is also a great way for early kidney disease detection.
