Tests for diagnosing and monitoring chronic kidney disease

In many cases, chronic kidney disease (CKD) is only found when a routine blood or urine test you have for another problem shows that your kidneys may not be working normally. Therefore, to know how well kidneys are working is to get tested. This is especially important for people who have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of kidney disease. In this session, we will discuss the clinical application of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). We will also look at testing for urine albumin.
