Albumin-to-Creatinine Ratio (ACR) Urine Testing
Want to start testing in your office or clinic? Here's how:
Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics and the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) have formed a strategic alliance focusing on education, awareness, and screening for kidney disease in high-risk individuals. This important collaboration leverages the latest testing recommendations from the NKF to improve detection among those at risk for kidney disease.
These new recommendations call on healthcare professionals to screen patients in high-risk groups by adding simple urine albumin tests to their patients' annual physical exams. Risk factors include:
- Age 60 or older - New!
- Family history of CKD, diabetes or hypertension
- U.S. ethnic minority
- History of acute kidney injury
National Kidney Foundation is not involved in the manufacture of any Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics products. Always consult a physician or qualified healthcare provider for advice regarding your health.
