Resource of the Month
The majority of at-risk Americans, including those living with diabetes, do not take their annual urine test . To help reach this population, has created a CKD Early Detection Service which allows patients to self-test in t heir own homes. Patients receive a test kit in the mail, take a picture with their phones, and the results are analyzed and made available immediately for a doctor to review. As a partner of the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), encourages self-testing to improve adherence rates and help patients find out if they have CKD while there is still time to prevent a progression to kidney failure. The ability to test at home is of particular value during the COVID-19 pandemic, offering patients a viable alternative to an in-person encounter.
