Does anyone know what the abbreviation for Kidney is on a blood test?

Is Kidney/liver something that they check on a normal CBC test? Also, is it red or white count that signals infection? Also what does it mean it the red count is a tad bit high? Thanks everyone!!!

I think these questions would be best if answered by the doctor who ordered this bloodwork. Why not make an appointment so that he/she can go over your test results with you. This would be the best way to go.

I just thought that someone here may know. Calling a doctors office can be a full days work if you know what I mean.

The kidney indicators are the BUN and creatinine. If they are high your kidneys are not clearing the blood as well. These are not on the CBC test, however. Infections are indicated with the WBC. If you live at a high elevation, your hemoglobin/RBC might be higher because the air is thinner up higher and your body compensates by increasing the carrying capacity of the blood for oxygen.

Re: Does anyone know what the abbreviation for Kidney is on a blood test?

I passes a kidney stone this weekend which I have had for years and I pulled up a copy of blood tests that I had back in 2005 and I was curious to see if that was on the test and what the result was. I have never passed a kidney stone before and the next day I was pretty tender in my lower abdomen which I didn't know if that was normal or not after passing a stone. Also, I have had some fatigue but I also had alot of stress about my Uncle going on life support and I was extremely upset about that thus making for up for my fatigue?? So, that's why I was asking.
