Resources on Kidney Health

Posted by on March 15th, 2017 Posted in: Consumer Health, Public Health


“Did you know? Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure. Almost half of people starting dialysis have kidney failure caused by diabetes. Diabetes can damage your kidneys. This damage can happen over many years, without you feeling it. But, even if you have diabetes, you can take steps to help keep your kidneys healthy.” –National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)

The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other government agencies have a wealth of health information resources online to help you educate yourself, your loved ones, your community, and/or your patients on healthy kidney function for National Kidney Month. Why not get started today?

Looking for more resources, or opportunities to get active for National Kidney Month? Contact us today to learn about training and other opportunities for outreach support.
