March is National Kidney Month
Kidney disease is the ninth leading cause of death in the United States. In 2000, more than 26 million U.S. adults had chronic kidney disease (CKD) yet most didn’t know it. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the primary causes.

American Diabetes Alert Day
Nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes and, of these, about 6 million do not know they have it. If current trends continue, 1 of 3 people born in the United States in 2000 will develop diabetes during their lifetime. In 2007, about 1.6 million adults were newly diagnosed with diabetes, and at least 57 million adults were at risk of developing diabetes. However, studies have shown that people at risk who lose weight and increase their physical activity can prevent or delay diabetes.
