Did you know that kidney disease is more common than you think?
- 1 in 9 Americans - 26 million people - live with Chronic Kidney Disease
- 1 in 3 adults - 73 million people - are at-risk because they have high blood pressure, diabetes or a family history of kidney disease and those who are obese, elderly or part of a minority group are at increased risk
- 1 in 2 Americans will develop kidney disease in their lifetime
- on Average, 13 people die each day while waiting for a kidney transplant
Kidney disease can no longer be ignored.
There is no cure for kidney disease, but the good news is that early detection can make a major difference and the National Kidney Foundation is working to get the message out to individuals, health care professionals, and other supporters who need to hear it most.
Did you know that the National Kidney Foundation is considered to be a thought leader in the field of kidney disease? We aim to share our knowledge so that everyone - the general public, patients, medical professionals, public officials, etc. - has accurate information about the kidney and an appropriate sense of urgency around kidney disease?
We leverage our knowledge and experience to promote our Three Pillars: Awareness, Prevention and Treatment
We carry out this work at a national level as well as through our local office in Cincinnati and other regions throughout the country. This structure enables us to drive national dialogue around kidney health while simultaneously providing opportunities for individuals to access our resources and support our work in their own communities.
Our impact will be strengthened by the power of your support.
