What can you do?
LEARN – At www.kidney.org, the public can obtain accurate and clear information about all aspects of kidney disease. Medical professionals can review guidelines and access resources for the optimal care of patients.
GET TESTED – 37 million Americans have chronic kidney disease. You may be one of them. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of these conditions, you are at risk. See your doctor and ask for three simple tests to determine if you have kidney disease. Check our events calendar to find free kidney health screenings near you.
