Glomeruli act as filters for the kidneys, removing waste from the blood. A glomerular filtration rate test checks how well the kidneys are working by measuring how much blood flows through the glomeruli in a minute.
A routine blood draw is required in order to begin the glomerular filtration rate test. The blood sample is then taken to a laboratory, where the glomerular filtration rate test begins.
