Preventive nephrology and screening programme

Preventive Nephrology and screening for Chronic Kidney Disease is a pre-emptive step in safeguarding your renal health. Your doctor might recommend regular screening tests to evaluate the functioning of your kidneys if you are at risk of CKD. CKD can disrupt the ability to filter waste from the blood and, if not treated on time, can compromise the entire functioning of the kidneys. One of the primary reasons behind CKD is diabetes, followed by uncontrolled high blood pressure. Preventive nephrology helps keep complications like heart disease caused by CKD at bay.


Who Needs Preventive Nephrology and Screening?

Patients suffering from chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and repeated kidney stones should go for periodic check-ups.

What Tests Are Recommended?

The early screening for CKD consists of simple blood and urine tests.

Urine Tests:

One of the standard urine tests is to check for the presence of protein in urine called Proteinuria, which is an early sign of early stages of kidney disease.

Urine-Albumin-To-Creatinine Ratio:

This test reveals the amount of albumin and compares it to the presence of creatinine in urine. It helps the doctor understand how much albumin passes into the urine over a 24-hour period.

Blood Tests:

  • Serum Creatinine
  • Glomerular Filtration Rate
  • Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN)

In some instances, imaging tests like CT-Scan will help understand the kidneys’ functioning.


If you are at risk of CKD, your doctor may ask to make lifestyle and dietary modifications and may recommend monthly tests.

You should be able to get urine and blood analysis within 24 hours.

Early screening helps your doctor decide the right course of treatment for you. Consult your nephrologist immediately.
