For individuals affected by kidney disease, genetic testing can identify underlying heritable causes, enable diagnoses, and provide insights on prognosis, clinical management, and risk of recurrence. Genetic testing can also help providers understand the need for additional patient and family member testing.
10% of kidney disease in adults may be genetic in nature1
15% of adults in the U.S. will develop kidney disease2
~70% OF KIDNEY DISEASE IN CHILDREN MAY BE GENETIC IN NATURE3
1/4 of individuals with kidney disease of unknown origin may receive a diagnosis through genetic testing4

Advanced analysis to diagnose genetic disease
Mayo Clinic Laboratories’ renal genetic testing was developed by a team of Mayo Clinic nephrology and genetic experts and is among the most comprehensive diagnostic testing available. Including a 302-gene nephrology panel and nine disease-focused panels, these evaluations use next-generation sequencing to evaluate clinically relevant genes across a number of disease states. In addition, these evaluations:
Informed by experts, optimized for actionable answers
Renal genetic testing at Mayo Clinic Laboratories was developed in collaboration with nephrologists, renal pathologists, geneticists, genetic counselors, and laboratory scientists. The genes included in our panels were carefully vetted to ensure results are clinically actionable. To optimize test ordering, we offer test utilization management services from genetic experts.
Our combined use of automated processes and manual review of each case provides efficient, high-quality results that are reported in the context of the patient information provided. Disease state experts are available for assistance with result interpretation and clinical experts are available for consultation on complex cases.
