Liver and Kidney Health
Your liver and kidneys are both responsible for filtering toxins from the bloodstream. You may not spend a lot of time thinking about this, but that’s okay because at Epoch Health do. We know just how important a healthy liver and kidneys are to your survival. That’s why our Free Men’s Health Screening includes a complete metabolic panel, which includes tests for BUN and creatinine levels, as well as a urinalysis.
Your liver is one of the hardest working organs in your body. It processes everything you eat and drink, repackaging what your body needs and eliminating everything it doesn’t. This is a critical function and can be easily put off balance by a diet high in fat, over-consumption of alcohol, certain types of drugs, or viruses. But with careful monitoring, and attention to your overall wellness, our doctors can he lp you maintain a healthy liver.
Did you know that 26 million American adults have some form of kidney disease – and most don’t even know it? In fact 1 in 3 American adults is currently
at risk for developing kidney disease. Don’t be that one. Preventative testing and a healthy lifestyle can go a long way to ensuring healthy kidneys.
For instance, high blood pressure and diabetes, treatable conditions if caught early and managed, are the two leading causes of kidney diseases. Your
Epoch Health doctor will review the results of your Men’s Health Screening and help you make the lifestyle modifications necessary for optimal kidney
