Kidney Health Week – 21st – 27th May 2023

Kidney Health Week aims to raise awareness about kidney disease in Australia.

Kidney disease is the 10th most common cause of death in Australia. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, over 50 people die from kidney related disease every day.

Kidney disease can be a serious condition in which the kidney loses part or all of its function. Kidney dysfunction can lead to a build-up of waste water which remains in the body. A consequence of kidney disease can include high blood pressure, bone disease, anaemia, acidosis and cholesterol problems.

Speak to your doctor today if you are concerned about any of these symptoms. For more information click here
