More than 30 million Americans have kidney disease, and most don’t even know it because there are often generally no symptoms until later stages. LabCorp, a laboratory option featured at Health Testing Centers, recently collaborated with the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) to help in the identification of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The study found that almost 90% of participants with type-2 diabetes and CKD were not diagnosed by their primary care physicians, and as many as 50% of patients with advanced CKD remained undiagnosed.
The results of the study showed an underutilization of testing in people at risk for CKD. Specifically, the albumin-creatinine ratio (also called Microalbumin: Creatinine ratio) is underutilized in the identification of kidney disease. This test along with other Kidney Function tests below, available at Health Testing Centers provide convenient options to help assess or possibly detect chronic kidney disease.
The Health Testing Centers team will be supporting the National Kidney Foundation by participating in the Kidney Walk on March 18th. Please join us or click on the link to support our team.
