These home medical tests may be relevant to Kidney damage causes:
Kidney damage, like hypertension, can be unnoticeable, detected only through medical tests. Blood tests will show whether your kidneys are removing wastes efficiently. Your doctor may refer to tests for serum creatinine and BUN, which stands for blood urea nitrogen. Having too much creatinine and urea nitrogen in your blood is a sign that you have kidney damage.
Another sign is proteinuria, or protein in your urine. Proteinuria has also been shown to be associated with heart disease and damaged blood vessels. (Source: excerpt from High Blood Pressure and Kidney Disease: NIDDK)
