More about kidney disease
Your kidneys are important! They help filter out waste and water from your blood, regulate your blood pressure and make red blood cells. If you have kidney failure, you need regular dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant to survive.

You can help prevent kidney disease by eating healthy, exercising and controlling your blood pressure and diabetes. Stop by the Kidney Health Fair to get screened for kidney disease and learn more about preventing it.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 KIDNEY HEALTH FAIR!
