Thus, serum KIM-1 may be recommended as a biomarker for detecting early diabetic nephropathy.14,16,17-20 KIM-1 levels in this study showed strong positive association with blood urea nitrogen as a marker for kidney function both at baseline (r= 0.728; p value = 0.000) and follow up (r=0.843; p value = 0.001).
Apparently animals fed on diet containing untreated rice husk had higher level of blood urea nitrogen and blood glucose than all other test groups but statistically difference was non-significant.
Patients admitted on off-hours had higher white blood cell (P=0.007), blood urea nitrogen (P=0.01), and potassium (P=0.001) than those admitted on regular hours.
Alternatively, order calcium and creatinine as separate tests, although this may be more expensive than a BMP BMP: basic metabolic panel; BUN: blood urea nitrogen; CBC: complete blood count; ECG: electrocardiogram; GFR: glomerular filtration rate; NSAID: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug; TSH: thyroid-stimulating hormone
