Kidney disease may not be top of mind for most Manitobans, but one in 10 Manitobans are living with kidney disease. In fact, Manitoba leads the country in rates of end-stage kidney disease. When kidneys stop working, life-sustaining dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed to stay alive.
We want Manitobans to know about kidney disease, before they get sick. A doctor can find out how your kidneys are doing through blood and urine tests done at regular, yearly check-ups. For many, early diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease can help delay or prevent kidney failure and the need for dialysis.
