Renal Blood Test

Having a kidney function blood test (a renal blood test) is an important health measure to take on a yearly basis, especially if you:

  • Are taking multiple medications
  • Are taking diuretics, for example, frusemide (water-loss tablets)
  • Have had a series of kidney or urine infections
  • Are taking ACE (angiotensin-converting-enzyme) inhibitors to control your blood pressure
  • Are simply feeling tired and you generally feel unwell

Issues with a poorly functioning or failed kidney are difficult to diagnose purely based on your presenting clinical symptoms; thus, having a kidney (renal) blood test is the best method for monitoring the functioning of your kidneys. If you do have a clinical history of either high/raised blood pressure or diabetes, or if you have a family history of multiple urine infections or kidney problems, then it is critical that you have these kidney function tests carried out each year. At your IPSA Medical clinic, your renal blood test results are back with us within 24 hours, and your IPSA Medical practitioner will interpret them fully for you and provide you with a copy of your results.

It is often quite difficult to book appointments with your NHS GP at a time that suits you. Your symptoms might have already faded, or you might have recovered by the time of your NHS GP appointment.
