When will screenings be available?

We expect new availability by Fall 2024. You’ll receive updates as soon as it’s accessible in your area.

What can be done for patients identified as at-risk by NaviDKD?

Each NaviDKD result includes personalized recommendations based on the patient's risk level and diabetes type. For Type 1 diabetes patients, recommendations may suggest using advanced diabetes technology and making lifestyle changes. For Type 2 diabetes patients, recommendations may focus on blood pressure control, glucose monitoring, and medication adjustments.

These recommendations help clinicians make informed changes to care plans and motivate patients to engage with their treatment. Our team is here to support you and your patients every step of the way, from interpreting results to creating personalized strategies for long-term success.

What payment options are available for my patients?

We are actively working to expand insurance coverage for NaviDKD.

You can submit this information through our secure online form or contact our support team for assistance. In the meantime, cash pay options will also be available, and NaviDKD is eligible for FSA or HSA reimbursement.

How does NaviDKD work and what does it measure?

NaviDKD measures three advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that are linked to kidney disease progression in people with diabetes. By combining these biomarkers with other health information like diabetes type, age, gender, length of diabetes diagnosis, A1c, and eGFR, NaviDKD assigns a precise risk score for each patient. 

To learn more about the science behind NaviDKD, visit and review our publications.

How accurate is NaviDKD in predicting kidney disease risk?

NaviDKD uses biomarkers researched over 40+ years to assess the risk of developing kidney disease over the next 8-12 years, with 91% sensitivity and 94% specificity.

How long does it take to receive NaviDKD test results?

Results are typically available within 5-7 business days after the blood sample is collected.

Do my patients still need regular kidney function tests if they use NaviDKD?

Yes, NaviDKD complements routine kidney screenings (eGFR and uACR tests) by providing early risk detection. Continue standard labs for routine monitoring, and consider repeating NaviDKD every 1-5 years based on the patient's risk level—less often for low-risk patients and more frequently for those with elevated or high risk.
