As you read this,Â 1.5 million AustraliansÂ of all ages are experiencing kidney failure â€“ failure that can lead to chronic kidney disease and the end of life as they know it. The alarming thing is: none of these people know that itâ€™s happening, since you can lose up to 90% of your kidney function without any symptoms.
One of those 1.5 million Australians could beÂ youâ€¦ right now. You just donâ€™t know it.
April 8-14 is Kidney Health Week 2019, a perfect time to remind all Australians not to be blind to kidney disease and the importance of undertaking a very simple online kidney risk test atÂ www.kidney.org.au.
