Kidney biomarkers help in the assessment of the fact that whether the kidney is in a proper state or not. Kidney diseases evolve gradually over a period of time. Thus, it is crucial to check for the presence of various biomarkers pointing towards the possible occurrence of renal diseases. This will ensure the timely diagnosis of the diseases and ensure its proper treatment. While Glomerular filtration rate is the ideal biomarker, it is time consuming. Certain other biomarkers in this category include Kidney injury molecule, Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin, Asymmetric dimethylarginine, albuminuria, serum creatinine and cystatin C.
