Signs of a kidney disease
Because early kidney disease has no symptoms, you may not know you have kidney disease until it reaches an advanced stage. An estimated one in eight adults are at risk for kidney disease. You are at risk if you have:
- Family history of kidney failure or dialysis
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
Testing for a kidney disease
A blood test and urine test can help determine if you have kidney disease. Like any disease, kidney disease can be treated if detected early. Our team will work with you to determine a rapid diagnosis and begin a personalized treatment plan.
