    A renal (kidney) panel, also known as kidney profile or Kidney Function Test (KFT), is a group of tests that help to  determine the health of the kidneys by evaluating various parameters such as proteins, electrolytes, and minerals. Kidneys not only flush out waste and toxins from our body through urine but also aid in the production of vitamin D, red blood cells and blood pressure-regulating hormones. Therefore, keeping your kidneys healthy should be a primary aim and this is where a Kidney function Test comes in handy.

    Apollo 24|7’s KFT test is specially designed to ascertain how well the kidneys are functioning, and if there are any abnormalities that need immediate attention. Blood urea nitrogen, Serum urea , Serum creatinine, Serum sodium, Serum potassium, and Serum uric acid are some of the parameters that the Kidney Function Test determines.

    Why should you get a RFT test or KFT test done?  

    • As a routine check-up 
    • For the early screening of kidney disease in people suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes 
    • To diagnose intrinsic kidney problems or diseases
    • To monitor the treatment of kidney disease

    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    The signs and symptoms of kidney dysfunction include fatigue, lack of concentration, poor appetite, difficulty in sleeping, swelling or puffiness around the eyes or in the face, wrists, abdomen, thighs, or ankles; foamy, bloody, or coffee-colored urine, decrease in the amount of urine, burning sensation while urinating, abnormal discharge during urination, or a change in the frequency of urination, especially at night; pain in mid-back, below the ribs, near the location of kidneys, and high blood pressure.
