The Kidney Disease Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the American Kidney Fund. It is intended to provide information on kidney disease and to help those with kidney disease find assistance paying for their medications.
Myth: kidney disease is rare. In fact, it is the 9th leading cause of death in the U.S and 1 in 3 adults in the U.S. are at risk for getting kidney disease. This is startling because you cannot survive without your kidneys. They filter waste and fluid out of your blood, but they also do many other important jobs that keep your body working the way it should. Anyone can get kidney disease, but some factors make it more likely such as if you have diabetes or high blood pressure. Some kidney problems may be temporary, or symptoms of other conditions like chronic kidney disease can lead to kidney failure. Although currently 30 million Americans have kidney disease, most do not know because it has no symptoms in early stages. Learn more in the Resources Box to the right.
