Earlier intervention for more effective management of kidney disease
SDMA, symmetric dimethylarginine, is produced in every cell and released into the body’s circulation during protein degradation. SDMA is excreted by the kidneys, making it a good marker for estimating kidney function. Identifying kidney disease earlier could help you and their owners manage a pet’s kidney disease more effectively.
