Kidney Function


What is the test for?

Your kidneys play a vital role in keeping your body functioning including the removal of waste products, releasing hormones to regulate blood pressure and controlling the production of red blood cells. A healthy kidney function is vital to your overall health and wellbeing. This test measures urea, creatinine and estimated glomerular f iltration rate (eGFR) which is a measure of how well the kidneys are doing their job of filtering out waste products from the blood.

What's included in the test?


  • Urea is a waste product that is filtered out of the bloodstream by the kidneys and passed out of the body in the urine. Urea tests are used to show how well the kidneys are working as well as an indicator for diseases affecting the kidneys and liver.

  • Creatinine is a waste product produced by muscles and the kidney removes it via the urine. Creatinine tests are used as an indicator of whether the kidneys are working normally.

  • eGFR
