What are the preparations required before renal biopsy?
The doctor first discusses with the patient or parents on the indications of renal biopsy and a written informed consent is obtained. 

Next, the patient must be deemed well and fit for the procedure and will be advised to be admitted for a total of two days. Renal biopsy is usually done electively as a non-urgent procedure. The patient will be admitted one day before the biopsy. Blood coagulation status and blood matching will be checked to make sure there is replacement blood on standby in the event a blood transfusion is required. 

Fasting is required for at least six hours before the procedure.
