Get to Know Your Kidneys

Today marks the beginning of National Kidney Month, and this year we’re encouraging you to get to know your kidneys.  No matter your age, or whether you have kidney disease, learning about your kidneys can prevent or slow the progression of kidney disease.

Visit our National Kidney Month page for resources and more information, including when to talk to a health care professional about getting tested for kidney disease.
