Diagnosis and Treatment

Kidney function tests look for the level of waste products, such as creatinine and urea, in blood. Analyzing a sample of urine may reveal abnormalities that point to chronic kidney failure and help identify the cause of chronic kidney disease. Kidney biopsy is often done with local anesthesia using a long, thin needle that's inserted through your skin and into your kidney. The biopsy sample is sent to a lab for testing to help determine what's causing your kidney problem. Ultrasound is used to assess your kidneys' structure and size. Diagnosis method vary for different conditions.
