Information About The Tests

Kidney Function Test

A Renal Function Test (RFT) is a group of tests that provide information about the functioning of the kidneys. The kidneys play a crucial role in maintaining the body's internal environment by regulating the balance of water and electrolytes, removing waste products, and producing hormones. Renal function tests help assess how well the kidneys are performing these functions.

  1. Urea
  2. Creatinine
  3. eGFR (Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate)
  4. Sodium
  5. Chloride
  6. Bicarbonate

These tests are often performed together as a panel to provide a comprehensive assessment of kidney function and electrolyte balance. Abnormal results may suggest the presence of kidney disease, dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, or other medical conditions. If you have concerns about your renal function, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional for a thorough evaluation and appropriate management.
