If you are taking these medicines, you will have a GFR test before and during treatment. This will show how the medicines may be affecting your kidneys.</p><h2>How is a GFR test done?</h2><p>The GFR is a combination of a blood test and a scan. First, a safe radioactive dye is injected into your vein through an IV or through a <a href="/Article?contentid=3534&language=English">port-a-cath or central venous line</a> if you have one.</p><p>Then you will have <a href="/Article?contentid=3438&language=English">blood tests</a> three different times: two, three, and four hours after the injection. The blood tests will show how much radioactive dye is left in your blood. This shows your health-care team how well your kidneys are cleaning your blood. A machine will also take pictures of the dye when it is in your kidneys. Your doctor will talk to you and your family about the results.</p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/Kidneys-Glomerula_filtration_rate_(GFR)_test.jpg
