Do You Know That 9 Out Of 10 People Have Chronic Kidney Disase, But Don't Know It?

I didn't have a clue. I guess the answer is why? So many of us live with obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc.

Maybe it's just me, but maybe this should be a part of our yearly exams. We start having symptoms in our 20's, but we don't get a diagnosis until we hit our 50's and 60's.

We shouldn't have to hear that we have CKD when the end is near, or when we have to make drastic lifestyle changes.

We would like to hear your thoughts on this.

  1. How did you find out that you had chronic kidney disease?
