Kidney Disease / Renal Disease

The kidneys play an important role within the body and have three main functions- excretion of waste, maintenance of extracellular fluid and hormone synthesis.

When the kidneys are not functioning efficiently, waste products and fluids begin to accumulate instead of being excreted which can cause serious health problems. Furthermore, kidney disorders can often develop and advance over a period of time without showing any signs; alternatively, symptoms are not recognised as being associated with kidney problems.

Kidney function testing is therefore essential for diagnosing and monitoring disease and will assist in the development of appropriate treatment plans. Randox offers a comprehensive range of high performance reagents for use in the detection and characterisation of renal function problems.
