Kidney Health Week 21-27 May 2023

Did you know that kidney failure can strike without any symptoms?

By the time symptoms of kidney disease are felt, people may be close to kidney failure. Kidney disease can be a "silent disease".

According to Kidney Health Australia, up to 3 in every 4 Australians may be at risk of kidney disease/failure.

Risk factors for kidney failure include:

  • diabetes

  • high blood pressure/other heart disease

  • smoking

  • overweight/obesity

  • family history

If detected early, kidney function deterioration can be reduced and kidney failure delayed.
