ASSESSMENT OF KIDNEY FUNCTION
Early detection of kidney disease is crucial to minimizing potential damage
There are many ways in which our physicians can determine the effectiveness of your kidney activities to ensure their proper functioning. Associates In Nephrology offer screenings to those individuals who are at a high risk of developing kidney disease as well as for those individuals who suspect kidney troubles.
We offer a series of tests that measure different levels in your blood and urine that will assess how well your kidneys are working and if you show any signs of anemia or high blood pressure. These tests are extremely important for the early detection of kidney disease as the sooner a problem is found the less damage your kidneys will suffer.
Individuals who have diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure or kidney disease are strongly encouraged to undergo these tests. Once the tests have been performed we will contact you with your results and offer any consultations or medical assistance that may be necessary.
