- About 30 million US adults (15%) have chronic kidney disease—a condition in which the kidneys are damaged and can’t filter blood as well as they should.
- People with chronic kidney disease may not feel ill or notice any symptoms, so if they have risk factors—such as diabetes or high blood pressure—it’s important they get tested.
- Healthcare providers and public health professionals can use and share CDC resources to help promote awareness, early diagnosis, and treatment of chronic kidney disease.
