A renal profile is designed to collect information about kidney function. The kidneys release a hormone called Renin. It regulates the blood pressure. A renal profile ultrasound is performed to look at the kidneys. The renal profile ultrasound is performed at the hospital by a radiologist and takes about 30 to 45 minutes .Acute kidney injury (AKI), previously called acute renal failure (ARF).Its causes are numerous and include low blood volume from any cause, exposure to substances harmful to the kidney, and obstruction of the urinary tract . AKI is diagnosed on the basis of characteristic laboratory findings, such as elevated blood urea nitrogen and creatinine or inability of the kidneys to produce sufficient amounts of urine.Most doctors use the plasma concentrations of the waste substances of creatinine and urea (U), as well as electrolytes(E), to determine renal function. These measures are adequate to determine whether a patient is suffering from kidney disease. However, blood urea nitrogen(BUN) and creatinine will not be raised above the normal range until 60% of total kidney function is lost. Hence, the more accurate Glomerular filtration rate or its approximation of the creatinine clearance is measured whenever renal disease is suspected or careful dosing of nephrotoxic drugs is required. Another prognostic marker for kidney disease is an elevated level of protein in the urine. The most sensitive marker of proteinuria is elevated urine albumin. Persistent presence of more than 30mg albumin per gram creatinine in the urine is diagnostic of chronic kidney disease (Microalbuminuria is a level of 30–299mg/L urine or 30-299 mg/24 hrs; a concentration of albumin in the urine that is not detected by usual urine dipstick methods).
