What's this test for?

Our Kidney Function test (Uric Acid) helps you to find out whether your kidneys are working normally. This measures how effectively your kidneys are filtering small molecules like urea and creatinine out of your blood.

Serum creatinine measurements along with age and gender are used to calculate the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), which is used as a screening test to look for evidence of kidney damage.

Symptoms of kidney dysfunction can include:

  • Fatigue, lack of concentration, poor appetite or trouble sleeping
  • Swelling or puffiness, particularly around the eyes or in the face, wrists, abdomen, thighs or ankles
  • Urine that is foamy, bloody, or coffee-coloured
  • A decrease in the amount of urine
  • Problems urinating, such as a burning feeling or abnormal discharge during urination, or a change in the frequency of urination, especially at night
  • Mid-back pain (flank), below the ribs, near where the kidneys are located
  • High blood pressure

 

Results 

Results are normally available in 2 working days after receipt of the sample at our lab. You will receive an email and SMS once your test results are ready to be downloaded from your secure account area, where you can also simply track and manage all your health test results at any time.
