NIDDK Health Information News

March is National Kidney Month. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) is encouraging people to Talk to Your Health Care Provider about Kidney Health.

Chronic kidney disease is a serious condition, affecting more than 30 million adults in the United States, yet people in the early stages may not have symptoms. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of kidney failure or heart failure, are at a greater risk for kidney disease.

The NIDDK encourages you to share important messages on this topic by sharing this video with three questions to start the conversation about kidney health with a health care provider.

In addition to this video, help spread the word about kidney disease with informational content available at no cost—a downloadable flyer and social media graphics. Feel free to use these materials in your community health outreach efforts.

Thanks in advance for sharing important information about kidney health!
