  • ARE YOUR KIDNEYS HEALTHY?

    People can have kidney disease without being aware of it. Kidney disease is frequently referred to as a silent killer as there are often no symptoms until the disease is quite advanced.

    Research has shown that some people are at higher risk of developing kidney disease and should have their kidney function checked even if they feel well.

    With the prevalence of kidney disease increasing every year in the UK, Kidney Research UK and NHS Choices have joined forces to raise awareness of kidney disease so that it can be detected earlier and help prevent cases in the future.

    Results

Your Results

Based on your responses if you have not had kidney function checked before, you should make an appointment with your GP for a simple blood and urine test. Your assesment highlighted the following possible factors:
  • Family history: some kidney diseases are caused by abnormalies in genes that may be passed from one generation to the next
  • High blood pressure: this can lead to kidney damage or, in some cases, be a sign of kidney disease.
  • Abnormal urine test: in some, but not all, cases this can be a sign of kidney disease so it’s worth further investigation
