Did you know that 1.4 million people worldwide are on dialysis? When caught early enough, the progression of kidney disease can be slowed down or in some cases even prevented with diet and help from an integrated care team. If kidney disease progresses to kidney failure, transplant and dialysis are the only options for survival.
Join kidney care patients and caregivers for a special 30-minute Google+ Hangout dedicated to global kidney disease awareness. We will discuss how kidney disease is a global health concern and what is being done around the world to help raise awareness.
