Tests and procedures

We offer a wide selection of tests, procedures and analyses to prevent, diagnose and monitor as well as treat illnesses. You will usually be referred for tests and procedures by our doctors or nurses. Various blood analysis packages are available without a referral. We perform blood, urine as well as stool tests. We offer all common X-ray imaging, ultrasound examinations and magnetic resonance imaging services. We perform, among other things, ECG, spirometry, Holter monitoring, sleep analysis, Dermtesting for mole examination and several other specific tests. We recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our doctors or nurses in addition to having analyses and tests. They will help interpret the results and give recommendations on how to stay in good health. At Confido, you can have analyses, tests and procedures performed quickly and conveniently. Confido also performs many diagnostic tests for family health centres where the costs are covered by the testing fund and the pricing is based on the price list of the Estonian Health Insurance Fund. This requires a referral by a general practitioner.

Evaluation of renal function (creatinine)

Creatinine is formed from creatine in muscle tissue during the metabolic process and is mainly excreted by the kidneys. The amount of creatinine the body produces is directly dependent on the person’s muscle mass.

Serum creatinine is a suitable test for the screening of renal insufficiency. It helps assess the intensity of renal function: based on the creatinine result, the CKD-EPI (Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration) formula for individuals over 18 years of age automatically calculates the estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate in ml/min/1.73 m2 per standard body surface area. This formula does not take into account a person’s body weight.

It is important to know that eating meat up to 7 hours before blood sampling can affect the value by around 10%. Low creatinine levels may be due to starvation or low muscle mass.
