Kidney Awareness Week: 5th-11th March

 

This week is Kidney Awareness Week. One in three people in Australia are at increased risk of kidney disease, and even though 53 people die every day with this highly undiagnosed condition, most are tragically unaware they are affected until it’s too late. That’s why, this Kidney Health Week (5-11 March), we’re raising awareness of the alarming incidence of kidney disease. Did you know 90% of kidney function can be lost without experiencing any symptoms?

 

Kidney Health Australia have an online test to see if you are at risk of kidney failure or reduced kidney function. Any symptoms or concerns should be followed up with your doctor.
