Kidney dysfunction higher in men than in women: Survey

New Delhi, Mar 14 : Kidney dysfunction is higher in men (19 per cent prevalence) than in women (9 per cent), says a survey.

'Gender wise, abnormalities in kidney function, showed that kidney malfunction is more common in men than in women, with an average of 19 per cent occurrence in men and 9 per cent in women,' a survey conducted by SRL Diagnostics revealed. The results of the survey were released on Thursday on the occasion of World Kidney Day.

People living in the Eastern states of India showed higher percentage of abnormal results in kidney-related laboratory tests than that done in other parts of the country, the survey said.

The findings of the survey were gleaned from Kidney Function Test (KFT) conducted by the diagnostics chain across the country between 2016 and 2018.

The analysis was obtained by studying the correlation of Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and Creatinine. (UNI)
