In brief: Basic stuff

Physical exam's good? If your BUN / blood urea nitrogen and creatinine are at or near reference range, urinalysis with sediment exam is normal or only has trace protein, and you can concentrate your urine to 1.
020 SG, your kidneys are working okay. Liver disease is screened for using the SGOT/AST, SGPT/ALT, and bilirubin; tests of actual liver function are seldom done as these are good screens.
