Information

Health check The kidney test, is designed to offer you a comprehensive insight into your kidney function and salt balance, especially if you suspect or are worried about kidney failure. The kidneys are important organs that play a crucial role in cleaning the blood of waste products and regulating the fluid balance in the body through the production of urine. The kidney test includes analyzes of several markers related to your kidney function, including eGFR (cystatin C), creatinine, sodium, cystatin C, albumin, phosphate, chloride, calcium and potassium to ensure a thorough assessment of your kidney health.

Why should I choose the kidney scan?

The kidneys perform critical functions in the body, and suspected kidney failure requires extra attention. With Njurkollen, you can quickly detect potential abnormalities at an early stage, which is crucial for taking immediate action and promoting long-term kidney health.

For those who suspect kidney failure, the Kidney scan provides a deeper understanding of kidney function. By analyzing markers such as eGFR (cystatin C) and creatinine, we offer molecular insight that helps you make informed decisions about your health, regardless of your current situation. When the kidneys fail, they lose their ability to effectively cleanse the body of harmful substances and excess fluid. Normally, these substances and excess fluid would be eliminated through the urine, but in kidney failure this process is disrupted.

The kidney check extends beyond a regular kidney check by including a detailed analysis of sodium, chloride, calcium and potassium. This comprehensive salt balance analysis provides a comprehensive picture of your body function and supports the optimization of fluid and electrolyte balance - an important aspect in the management of kidney failure.

Where are the kidneys?

The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs located in the lower back above the waist. The kidneys sit on each side of the spine and are part of the upper abdominal cavity. Normally, the right kidney is slightly lower than the left, due to the position of the liver on the right side of the body.

Check the kidneys for back pain?

In some cases, especially with kidney inflammation or kidney stones, there may be pain in the back or flank, which is the area between the ribs and the hip on the side of the back where the kidneys sit. It is important to note that pain is not always a clear symptom of kidney failure, especially in the early stages where a check of your kidney values can be used as a preventative measure. If you suspect problems with your kidneys or experience any of these symptoms, it is best to seek medical help for a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Proteins are specific nutrients made up of several combined amino acids. In the body, there are over 10,000 different proteins that form the building blocks of all tissues and other body parts and are used in several important processes such as forming cells, enzymes and hormones.

ALB
Albumin
Albumin is a protein from the liver that keeps fluid in the bloodstream. In kidney disease, albumin can leak into the urine, resulting in lower albumin levels in the blood and swelling of the body. Low albumin can also indicate poor nutritional status.

The markers of the kidney tests measure values of various kidney markers that can provide answers as to whether you have reduced kidney function. Get answers to your values - order and make an appointment for a blood test.

CYS
Cystatin C
Cystatin C is a protein produced by all cells in the body and filtered by the kidneys. Measuring cystatin C levels can give an indication of kidney function.

PO4
Phosphate
Phosphate is an additive, it often appears in combination with, for example, sodium and calcium which form salts - these are called phosphates.

CL
Chloride
Chloride is an electrolyte that is important for normal cell function and regulation of fluid and salt balance in the body. It is part of the stomach's hydrochloric acid and contributes to food digestion.

CR
Creatinine
Creatinine is formed in your muscles when the body breaks down creatine phosphate (the muscles' energy reserve). The kidneys' job is to filter creatinine.

EGF
eGFR Cystatin C
eGFR is a marker of kidney function, a low eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate) may indicate impaired kidney function.

Minerals are non-organic compounds that are used as building blocks to build up parts of the body.

CA
Calcium
Calcium is important for muscles, nerves and heart. We get calcium from dairy products, leafy vegetables and nuts. Vegetarians and vegans can get added calcium from alternatives to milk.

K
Potassium
Potassium is an important mineral for body function, especially for muscle cells. A small part of the total amount of potassium is found in body fluids, and when the potassium level is measured, it is measured in the fluid around the blood cells.

NA
Sodium
Sodium is a mineral that we get in our diet through, for example, meat, fish and cereals, as well as ordinary table salt, which consists of sodium chloride.
