The costs of treating late-stage kidney disease keep rising for everyone, including the federal government. Worse, more than one in three kidney failure patients don’t receive kidney care or sometimes don’t even know they have kidney disease before starting dialysis.
The need to increase federal funds for programs that promote kidney disease awareness, education, and management is more clear than ever on this World Kidney Day: Help us do something about it by telling your federal lawmaker to support our funding efforts now.
We have a unique opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of so many kidney patients, while also helping to ensure that we decrease Medicare expenditures by getting more patients screened, diagnosed, and on a treatment plan before they reach expensive kidney failure.
