March is Kidney Month!

Urine for some fun facts about kidney health.

Did you know?

  • More than 1 in 7, that is 15% of US adults or 37 million people, are estimated to have CKD.⁠

  • As many as 9 in 10 adults with CKD do not know they have CKD, and bout 2 in 5 adults with severe CKD do not know they have CKD.⁠

  • If you have CKD, meet with a dietician to create a kidney-healthy eating plan. The plan may need to change as you get older or if your health status changes.
