The filtration function is responsible for purifying our blood and filtering out the waste that our body produces everyday. The BUN and Creatinine that appear in the routine blood test are examples of this waste.
The kidney hormones are responsible for regulating the functions of the circulation, the heart, the bones, the red blood cell production, etc.
When the kidney function declines, a condition called Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) develops.
Discovering this condition early is very important to prevent serious health problems e.g. enlarged heart, high blood pressure, salt and water retention, edema, shortness of breath, weakness, fatigue, heart failure, back pain, loss of height, curved back, joint pains, osteoporosis, bone fractures, anemia, poor quality of life and many other disabilities.
It is important to diagnose CKD early but is it easy to make this very important diagnosis using routine labs!
You have to lose more than 50% of the filtration function of the kidney for the BUN and Creatinine levels to rise in the blood to have a clue that there is a kidney problem. Unfortunately the hormone dysfunction can cause many serious problems years before that!
You would want to know that you have CKD early to prevent many serious health problems that will affect your quality of life.
Yes, you still can have the chronic kidney disease condition. The disease is masked in many group of patients. That is why the chronic kidney disease condition is called the “silent killer”
The Kidney Center offers advanced methods for early detection of Chronic Kidney Disease that allows for early intervention to prevent many complications and improve the quality of life.
Discovering Chronic Kidney Disease using the traditional methods would miss the early detection in some group of patients including youth, pregnant, seniors, malnutrition, liver disease and heart failure patients.
