Living Kidney Donation

Urine Tests and 24-Hour Urine Collection


Tests for all potential donors

Urine Tests

Your urine is tested for infection, protein, and blood. A urine test is done at least twice over the time of the donor evaluation.

24-Hour Urine Collection

For this test you’ll collect all your urine over 24 hours. The lab will give you a container to collect it in. When you return the container to the lab, they’ll do a blood test. The dissolved minerals in your urine are compared to those in your blood. The results of the test show how well your kidneys are working.​
