Our Kidney Health Test looks at 3 key markers of kidney function and blood sugar control to give you insight into your kidney health. Your kidneys play a crucial role in your health, filtering your blood and excreting waste and toxins into your urine. In fact, healthy kidneys filter your entire blood supply three times per day! Poor kidney function can be an indicator of more serious problems but when caught early, many conditions can be prevented.

What are we checking for?

Kidney Health Test


What is it?

A hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test measures the amount of sugar (glucose) attached to hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is important as it aids in the transportation of oxygen throughout your body via red blood cells. 

This biomarker indicates your average blood sugar level over the past three months, which may be helpful in identifying people suffering from diabetes or prediabetes. In those diagnosed with Diabetes or Prediabetes, HbA1c levels help reveal how well these conditions are being managed. 

How does it affect me?

If your test results show elevated HbA1c levels, it simply means there is too much sugar in your blood which may be a sign of prediabetes or diabetes. For those already diagnosed with diabetes, high HbA1c levels suggest your current plan may need to be revised to better control your diabetes.

Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR)

What is it?

Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) is the estimated rate at which your kidneys are able to produce "cleansed blood" by filtering out waste products, like creatinine. This number is calculated using your serum creatinine result along with your age, weight, and biological sex. A care provider can use this number to understand how well your kidneys are functioning and if you may benefit from medical or lifestyle interventions to improve kidney function. If you have diabetes, it is especially important to understand how your condition is affecting your kidneys.

How does it affect me?

Lower than normal levels may indicates that your kidneys may not be functioning properly and you may have developed kidney disease.


What is it?

Creatinine is byproduct of normal muscle function that is filtered out of your blood by your kidneys and exits your body in urine. Measuring how much creatinine is in your blood may be helpful in understanding how diabetes may be affecting your kidney function.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this test work?

Healthyr At-Home Tests all use the latest Dried Blood Spot technology to safely collect a sample at home and then have it processed in one of our CLIA certified labs. This involves using a small lancet, pricking your finger and dripping the blood onto the provided card.

Does pricking my finger hurt?

Pain tolerence is relative to everyone. We use a small gauge lancet for minimal incision. If you're curious how big the incision is or where to prick please refer to our Instructional Video to see. It's on every product page if you scroll through our images. And we promise, this won't hurt any worse then spending hours at the doctor's office.

What if I can’t get enough blood on the card?

Three lancets are provided to give you the best chance of collecting enough blood for the sample. We recommend drinking a glass of water thirty minutes before collecting your sample, washing your hands in warm water, and raising your heart rate just before lancing. A couple ways you can raise your heartrate is by doing 20 jumping jacks or looking at pictures of your ex on Instagram.

What if I follow those tips and still can’t get enough blood?

1) You probably don't need to be worried about being a vampire's first victim and 2) Call us and we're happy to help. Our Customer Service Number is on your test box and here at 833-416-6816. If you have trouble during the collection process, please reach out to us and we can provide a new test kit. We are also happy to walk you through the test while you take it.

What happens if my sample gets lost in the mail?

Regrettably, we don’t have any control over the mail, but we will keep track of your sample and notify you if it appears lost. If you need us to find your tracking information reach out and we're happy to find it for you!

What would cause my sample to get rejected?

• The most common rejection reasons are not enough or too much blood or smearing.
• Red blood must cross the 1st line. Passing the 3rd line is okay, but the lab actually needs to punch out the serum (whiteish part).
• If you let the strip dry and then go to add more blood, it will not separate correctly. Once a strip gets wet, you must add enough blood before it dries.
• Once you have completed your collection, ensure that the blood is dried completely before putting it in the mailer bag.

What happens if my sample gets rejected?

In the event that the lab is unable to process your sample, you will receive notice and a new kit, free of charge.

How do I get my sample to the lab?

Every Healthyr Test comes with a prepaid USPS shipping envelope and a biohazard bag. All you have to do is place your sample and the provided biohazard bag into the prepaid shipping envelope and place it in your mailbox or drop it off at your nearest Post Office.

How long will it take to receive my results?

From the time that the lab receives your sample, it will take approximately 1-3 days to receive your results.
