SDMA, symmetric dimethylarginine, is excreted by the kidneys, making it a good marker for estimating kidney function.
Identifying kidney disease earlier makes it possible for you to intervene and more effectively manage kidney disease.
Chronic kidney disease is common, with 1 in 3 cats1 and 1 in 10 dogs2 developing some form of kidney disease over their lifetime. Recent studies suggest kidney disease is even more common and until now has been under-recognized.3 The IDEXX SDMA test is a revolutionary new kidney function test that will enable you to diagnose CKD in cats and dogs months or even years earlier than traditional methods, making it possible to intervene earlier and more effectively manage kidney disease.
The IDEXX SDMA kidney test is included in all routine IDEXX Reference Laboratories chemistry profiles at no additional cost and with the same turnaround time.
