A kidney function test or a KFT test, is a group of blood and urine tests to evaluate the health of your kidneys. A KFT test allows healthcare professionals to properly diagnose if there are any kidney problems and customize a treatment plan.

The blood test for kidney function is a non-invasive test that measures the levels of waste products in the blood that are normally filtered out by the kidneys. The RFT blood test and KFT blood test are two common types of tests used to check kidney function.

Why Do  I Need Renal Function Test?

The two kidneys are an important part of the urinary system. They sit in the back of the abdomen just below the ribcage. Their major function is to help your body filter waste materials and expel them as urine. But if the potency of your kidney’s filtering system is getting weaker, you might be suggested for a renal function test. The following might be one of the reasons for it:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Diabetes
  • Family history of kidney disease.
  • Blood in your urine (hematuria).
  • Painful urination (dysuria).
  • Frequent urge to urinate.
  • Problems with starting to pee.

How To Prepare For KFT Blood Test?

It is advised to be under fasting (not eat anything) for at least 8-12 hours before the healthcare provider can collect your blood for the KFT blood test sampling.

However, if you are currently taking any medications, it is important to let the provider know this before the test. They might request you stop taking certain medications before the test for accurate results.

What Happens During KFT Blood Test?

A KFT test only takes a few minutes. 

  • As per the scheduled time of the blood test, a Lab Technician who usually takes blood samples will arrive.
  • A thin needle will be used to draw blood from your arm’s vein.
  • The needle might cause a mild pinch and some discomfort.
  • The lab technician then fills a collection tube with blood and then removes the needle from the skin.
  • They place a small bandage on the arm
  • These samples are then sent over to the laboratory for analysis of the levels of creatinine, urea, and other markers of kidney functions.

Please note: There might be slight pain or bruising at the spot where the needle was inserted, but most of the symptoms go away quickly.

FAQs around Kidney Function Test (RFT/KFT)

When healthcare professionals usually measure kidney function, they often use a percentage to describe how well the kidneys are functioning. For example, if someone's kidney function is measured at 52%, that means their kidneys are functioning at 52% of their normal capacity. This percentage is often calculated based on a blood test called a renal function test (RFT).

There are various tests like the renal function test (RFT), the creatinine blood test, the blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test, the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) test, and urine tests to check for protein and albumin levels.

Regaining kidney function solely depends on the cause and extent of the kidney damage. In certain cases with minimal injury to the kidney, the kidney functions can be restored by a proper treatment plan, ut in the case of chronic kidney disease, the damage is usually permanent and cannot be restored.

Kidney function tests (KFT) measure various parameters of the ability of the kidneys to filter waste products from the blood and excrete them through urine. It measures the levels of creatinine, urea, and other electrolytes in the blood to determine the efficiency of the kidneys.

While a Renal Function Test or RFT is considered to be the gold standard when it comes to an accurate diagnosis of Kidney Function, there are other tests like KFT and renal profile test as well, which are useful in assessing kidney health.
