In brief: Risk factors

First, see your primary care doctor and review you personal history as well as your family history.
If there is a family history of kidney disease, then your primary needs to tell you if this is a risk factor for kidney disease in you. While you're there have your bun, creatinine, blood count, and urine all checked for anything abnormal if this is medically indicated.
