Facts About Chronic Kidney Disease

•Kidney disease is common, harmful, and treatable.
•26 million Americans have kidney disease – but most do not know they have it. Millions more are at increased risk.
•High risk groups include those with diabetes, hypertension, and a family history of kidney disease. Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Pacific Islanders, American Indians, and seniors are also at increased risk.
•Early detection can slow the progression of kidney disease.
•Once kidneys fail, patients need dialysis or a transplant to survive.

The National Kidney Foundation is the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of kidney disease for hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals, millions of patients and their families, and tens of millions of Americans at risk.

By supporting the National Kidney Foundation, you directly influence and positively impact the lives of those at risk for kidney disease, those living with chronic kidney disease, and those who care for and about them.
