Everyone wants to know whether their kidneys are healthy. But how do you want to judge whether the kidneys are healthy? Doctors need to combine the previous history of illness, family history, symptoms, signs, and the necessary laboratory tests and other aspects of the situation to comprehensive judgments.

In addition, China's kindergarten science publicity is relatively weak, the majority of the masses failed to fully understand the knowledge of the prevention of kidney disease. And the masses difficult to see a doctor still exist, so that some patients failed to timely treatment or reluctant to actively visit, but also difficult to early detection of chronic kidney disease is an important reason.
