Kidney (ALB) Home Test Kit
Check the concentration of albumin in the urine to verify alterations in kidney function. Accurate to 99% when performed correctly.
WHY SHOULD I PERFORM THE TEST?
A high albumin level reflects dysfunction of the kidneys' filtering function. The kidneys filter blood to remove impurities: small composites are discharged while proteins, which are bigger, are retained by kidneys. Albumin is one of those proteins that should be retained by kidneys. If the kidneys work properly, the concentration of albumin is zero or less than 10 mg/dl. Concentration of glucose or triglycerides, diabetes or hypertension are all factors that increase the concentration of albumin in urine. Testing the presence of albumin in urine is a very good tool for checking our own health status so we can take preventive action or get treatment early.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The test works by showing you the concentration of albumin in your urine as normal, or above the normal value.
