Don't be blind to kidney disease

Take the online Kidney Risk Test

90% of kidney function can be lost without any symptoms, and there are currently 5 million adults living in Australia at risk of developing chronic kidney disease due to risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity and being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander origin.

Alarmingly, most people are blind to kidney disease. In fact, there are currently 1.5 million people in Australia who are unaware that they already have early stages of it... That’s why, during Kidney Health Week 2019, we opened everyone’s eyes to kidney disease and raise awareness of the critical need for early detection.

Know the risks. Take the test.

ISN Community Film Award

During Kidney Health Week, The International Society Nephrology (ISN) pioneered a special film event at the World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) on Saturday 13 April 2019 in Melbourne Australia. The concept was to showcase films that reflect patient experiences or provide education for patients on renal topics, such as commencing dialysis.

At the congress, WCN 2019 participants voted for the best film out of six films preselected by a jury.
