Kidney Disease Awareness Month – How Much Do You Know?

When we see people wearing green in the month of March, your first thought may be St. Patrick’s Day.  Green, however, is also the color for Kidney Disease Awareness, and March is the month where organizations work on spreading the word about screening and testing for kidney disease.

So how much do you know about kidney disease?

According to an article by Science Daily in August 2009, 80,000 people in the USA are waiting for kidney transplants and 4,000 people die while waiting for a new kidney.  The National Kidney Foundation says that 1 in 9 Americans has chronic kidney disease.

Both the National Kidney Foundation and the National Kidney Disease Education Program recommend that if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or a family history of either condition that you talk to your doctor about getting screened for kidney disease.

Remember to wear green this March, especially on March 11th (World Kidney Day), to show your support for kidney disease awareness and research.
