The kidneys are our filters for getting rid of our body's waste and returning vitamins, amino acids, glucose, hormones and other vital substances into the bloodstream. When the kidneys are not working properly, harmful toxins and excess fluids build up in the body, which may cause the symptoms of kidney failure. These symptoms can include high blood pressure, extreme tiredness or lethargy, persistent headaches, swelling in the face and ankles, fluid retention and / or lower back pain.

This test indicates the health of your kidneys giving you peace of mind that everything is working properly or vital information to seek the necessary medical attention
