Hi,Kim thanx 4 ur advice.Laurensmom,i m a medical student.Just gave my final exam and waiting for internship.As far i know,kidney biopsy is done when kindey function is compromised.Pls give a minute to read indications 4rm this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renal_biopsy
I live in Bangladesh & study in Dhaka Medical College.Doctors do invasive procedure like kidney biopsy here when non-invasive Imaging techniques like Ultrasono,MRI,CT scan... reveal abnormality of kidney region like any mass/stone.Kidney biopsy is last option for investigation.
