A Simple Urine Test For Detecting Kidney Disease

A new finding have released last week which have suggested that a simple screening test for the protection of urine can be used for identifying the individual who in general are living at  highest risk of rapid kidney function decline.

By keeping the link with this fact various scientists have stated “This test is quite being able to lead potentiality as well as provide more effective treatments.” Moreover the patients who will use this will get the benefit of monitoring most form of serial kidney function as well as primary treatment for preventing this disease.

In this regard William Clark (Managing Director of the University of Western Ontario  as well as London Health Sciences Centre) and his colleagues have monitored more than 2,580 patients within a community based clinic, during the period of seven years.

Throughout, their entire findings they have found that a positive dipstick urine test was one of the strong predictor of the rapid kidney function decline, because more than 2.5 percent of participants in this study are living with existing urinary protein concentration since the start of this study.

Among those patients, this test have identified the individual kidney function decline of 91 percent patients correctly, while 1.5 percent have mislabeled following 7.7 percent, those have been identified with this condition later.

Throughout, this entire test the certain risk factors such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension can be identified quite easily, while after invention of this test the identification of rapid kidney function have increased from 13 to 44 percent.

With sequence to the fact Dr. Clark have said “Through out our whole study we have found the routine inexperience urine dipstick screening with a population that with or without the risk factors. Moreover, it will allow primary clinicians for following fewer patients along with serial monitoring in order to identify those along with rapid kidney function decline, in general who will potentially get the benefit from earlier referral and therapeutic intervention”
