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