What tests led to your chronic kidney disease diagnosis?

There are multiple tests that a doctor may use to diagnose chronic kidney disease (CKD). Some of the most common are urine and blood tests. Imaging tests, such as an MRI, ultrasound, or CT scan may be used to identify kidney issues such as inflammation and cysts. Some people may also undergo a kidney biopsy to better understand the cause of one's CKD.

What tests were used for your chronic kidney disease diagnosis? Do you have any tips or advice for people who might be nervous about undergoing some of these tests?
