Kidneys are essential in our body to remove waste materials. Excess water is removed from our bodies with the help of kidneys. Kidneys also help maintain the balance of crucial chemicals like potassium and calcium. Sometimes, kidneys stop functioning efficiently, and we have to face severe consequences. To determine the effectiveness of kidneys, a kidney biopsy test is required. A kidney biopsy can determine a damage/disease that cannot be determined otherwise. Doctors also want patients to undergo these biopsies to determine a course of treatment. The biopsy process involves taking one or more samples from your kidney. These samples are then studied under the microscope to determine any abnormality. Kidney issues are critical and need to be solved as soon as possible. If damage in the kidneys is overlooked, it might be life-threatening. A kidney biopsy will help collect the sample required for further studies in the lab.
