Hi, this is Robert Galarowicz, founder of HealthyKidneyInc.com which is all about helping people treat their chronic kidney disease naturally. Today I wanted to discuss one of the most vitally important tests your doctors need to be conducting on you if you have kidney disease. It’s a uric acid test and it’s one of the best ways to keep your kidney functioning at its maximum potential.
Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most widely-passed-by tests that far too many nephrologists and other doctors fail to test for consistently. This is a tragic oversight, as it’s literally one of the easiest levels to test for and one of the most important in kidney disease The connection between uric acid and your kidneys has been supported by numerous studies and if your uric acid is too high, it may be necessary to begin a uric acid-lowering therapy, such as Uloric a medication known to lower uric acid levels and commonly prescribed for conditions such as gout.
Never assume your doctor or healthcare provider is conducting the tests you need, ALWAYS be your own best health advocate and be sure to ask, request and even demand a uric acid test if need be. It’s your health and you need to make extra-sure your healthcare providers are placing as much value on it as you yourself would.
