Kidney Health Week 8-14th April 2019
A message from Kidney Health Australia:
Kidney disease is a highly undiagnosed condition; most people are tragically unaware they are affected until it’s too late. In fact 90% of kidney function can be lost without experiencing any symptoms. That’s why, this Kidney Health Week, we’re opening everyone’s eyes to kidney disease and raising awareness of the alarming fact that 5 million adult Australians are at increased risk of suffering from the chronic illness. Our message to Australia is don’t be blind to kidney disease by waiting until you feel sick; find out your risk profile by taking a simple online risk test. https://kidney.org.au/kidney-health-week-2019 And, if you fall into a high-risk group, get your kidneys checked by a GP.
This week, Monash Health sends a special thanks to our wonderful nephrology staff who are highly committed to improving the lives of our patients with kidney disease and kidney failure.
