Albumin-to-Creatinine Ratio (ACR) Urine Testing
Why it’s important, and how you can start testing in your office or clinic
Siemens Healthineers 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.
National Kidney Foundation Strategic Alliance for Education and Screening
Siemens Healthineers supports the goals of the National Kidney Foundation to increase awareness, prevention, and treatment of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Through early intervention and education, the alliance encourages timely testing for at-risk individuals by primary care practitioners.
Your Kidneys And You
Go from "zero" to "kidney consciousness" in less than 3 minutes with the NKF’s “Your Kidneys and You” video! Most people don't know how important their kidneys are to their health. If caught early, kidney disease can be slowed or even stopped. Watch and share this video to help raise awareness about kidney health.
Learn about Kidney Disease
Kidney disease refers to any disease, disorder, or condition that affects the kidneys. Siemens Healthineers partners with healthcare providers to improve the patient experience over a lifetime of the kidney healthcare continuum.
