Kidney Health Week is a national campaign to highlight kidney disease and the importance of early detection, better management and prevention of this disease to the Australian community.
Around 2 million Australians have early kidney damage but do not know it yet. In Kidney Health Week, Kidney Health Australia organises events and activities to raise awareness of the risk factors for kidney disease.
Do you have diabetes or high blood pressure? These common conditions can increase your risk of kidney disease. Up to 90% of your kidney function can be gone before you have symptoms. Find out more at myDr's related links.
