And find out why it's critical to start using the IDEXX SDMA Test in your practice.
SDMA* is more reliable than creatinine when it comes to assessing kidney function because SDMA detects kidney disease earlier and is not impacted by muscle mass or other extrarenal factors.1-5
SDMA detects problems with kidney function in cats and dogs with weight or muscle mass loss.4,5
SDMA gives you the power to diagnose kidney disease earlier. This means you have more time to effectively treat the problem, so you can improve and possibly extend the lives of your patients.
Now, SDMA should be a part of every chemistry panel you run to assess kidney function. The IDEXX SDMA™ Test has been included in the International Renal Interest Society (IRIS) Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Staging and Treatment Guidelines as a useful adjunct for diagnosing chronic kidney disease and helping to determine treatment for the appropriate stage of CKD.
1 in 3 cats6 and 1 in 10 dogs7 will suffer from chronic kidney disease in their lifetime. The IDEXX SDMA Test data supports that kidney disease is 2 times more common than previously reported. In two years, the IDEXX SDMA Test has identified over 1,000,000 cats and dogs with probable kidney disease that creatinine would have missed.8
