Understanding KFT (Kidney Function Test) in New Delhi

What is KFT (Kidney Function Test) in New Delhi?

A KFT (Kidney Function Test), also known as Renal Function Test (RFT), evaluates the functioning of your kidneys at an affordable price in New Delhi with Tata 1mg labs. KFT/RFT helps with the early detection of kidney problems such as kidney stones, kidney failure, or kidney infections. This early detection allows your doctor to initiate effective treatment and avoid future complications. This standard blood test can also be used as a follow-up test for previous kidney problems or to monitor ongoing treatment responses for kidney diseases.

The doctor may advise KFT (Kidney Function Test) if you experience symptoms suggestive of kidney problems, such as frequent urination, bloody urine, muscle cramps, or sharp pain in your groin, or if you have risk factors for kidney disease, such as obesity, diabetes, excessive alcohol consumption, or a family history of kidney disease. Usually, no special preparation is required for this test. You may eat and drink normally as per your daily routine.

What does KFT (Kidney Function Test) measure?

Contains 3 tests

A KFT (Kidney Function Test) comprises a series of blood tests that collectively determine the health of your kidneys. KFT/RFT evaluates the value of parameters such as creatinine, urea, and uric acid to diagnose inflammation, infection, or damage and detect kidney disease. In addition, people with diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and a family history of kidney disease must undergo KFT/RFT regularly to check for any kidney damage.

Serum Creatinine

A Serum Creatinine test measures the level of creatinine in the blood. Creatinine is a byproduct of muscles’ wear and tear during energy production. The kidneys remove it from the body by filtering from the blood and releasing it into the urine. Therefore, blood creatinine levels can be an indicator to know how well the kidneys are working.

Uric Acid

A Uric Acid test determines the level of uric acid in your body. Uric acid is a nitrogenous compound produced by the metabolic breakdown of purine. Purines are present as nitrogenous bases in the DNA and are also found in food like red meat and seafood.

Most uric acid dissolves in the blood and goes into your kidneys. From there, it passes through your body via the urine. Decreased elimination of uric acid is often a result of impaired kidney function due to kidney disease. In many cases, the exact cause of excess uric acid is unknown. Doctors seldom need to test for low levels of uric acid.
