Liver disease refers to any disease or disorder that causes the liver to stop functioning as it should, examples of liver disease: Hepatitis A, B, C, E, Alcohol damage, Fatty liver, Cirrhosis. There are over one hundred types of liver disease and they affect over two million people in the UK. This figure may only be the tip of an iceberg as many cases remain un-diagnosed. This is because your liver is very resourceful and able to work well enough even when it may be damaged. This means that you may often not “present” with clear symptoms, or show obvious sign of liver disease or illness. This simple home screening liver test can help to identify if there is a problem by checking for Bilirubin and Urobilinogen levels in your urine, raised levels can indicate liver disease. It is recommended that you take this test if you are feeling generally unwell or are experiencing any of the following: Nausea, Fatigue, Lack of appetite and Yellowing of the skin and eyes.
The Kidney Test is intended to detect the presence of Creatinine, Specific gravity and Protein in the urine. These are indicators of the presence of kidney disease. Kidney infection is an infection of one or both kidneys. Infections can develop at any age and are usually more common in women. Infections develop when bacteria from the bladder travels up the kidneys, this can happen when you have cystitis, although most people who have cystitis will not get a kidney infection. An infection that develops without a bladder infection can be caused by kidney stones or a blockage in one of the ureters. Occasionally bacteria can reach the kidneys from the bloodstream. It is recommended that you take this test if you are suffering from fluid retention, high blood pressure, blood in the urine, frequent urination, difficulty urinating or a reduced volume of urine during urination, fatigue, lack of appetite, nausea, or soreness in the waist or lower back area, as these are signs of kidney disease.
