Kidneys approximately filter about 150 quarts of blood each day. The kidneys are the organs that produce urine and expels excess water from the body along with waste products. Kidney function tests are a group of tests that help your doctor understand how well your kidneys are performing. The tests measure levels of various substances, including several minerals, electrolytes, proteins, and glucose (sugar), in the blood to determine the current status of the kidneys.
