Kidney healthcheck

Are your kidneys healthy?

Every day 19 people in the UK will develop kidney failure. People can have kidney problems without being aware of it. There are often no symptoms until the problems are quite advanced.

Your urine holds the clues. Blood and protein in your wee could be signs of kidney problems.

Your kidneys are vital to your health. If they are not in good shape over a period of time you could end up needing life-limiting treatments such as dialysis.

Take our quick and easy health check, to see if you are at risk of kidney disease. It only takes two minutes and we will send you your results straight away.
