Every human has two kidneys, one on either side of the spine, that are each approximately the size of a human fist. The kidneys play several vital roles in maintaining your health.
One of their most important jobs is to filter waste materials from the blood and expel them from the body as urine. The kidneys also help control the levels of water, pH, and various essential minerals in the body. In addition, they’re critical to the production of Vitamin D, Red Blood Cells, and hormones that regulate blood pressure.
What is Kidney Function Test?
If your doctor thinks your kidneys may not be working properly, you may need to undergo kidney function tests. These are simple blood and urine tests that can identify problems with your kidneys.
You may also need kidney function testing done if you have other conditions that can harm the kidneys, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. They can help doctors monitor these conditions.
