A blood test for creatinine. Creatinine is a waste product produced from normal muscle activity. It’s removed from the blood by the kidneys, but if your kidneys are damaged, your blood will show very high levels of creatinine. The levels of creatinine in the blood can be used to calculate glomerular filtration rate (GFR).
An ultrasound or CT scan. The ultrasound or CT scan obtains an image of the kidneys and urinary tract and determines if there is a kidney tumour, stone or other physical anomaly affecting the kidneys and urinary tract.
A kidney biopsy. A kidney biopsy identifies the type of kidney disease present, the degree of damage to the kidneys can further suggests the best course of treatment.
