Knowing Your Kidney Number Could Save Your Life
Date:3/8/2010

DALLAS, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a silent epidemic that affects millions of Americans. Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a life-threatening illness that can often be treated successfully if found early, and can be detected at an early stage using simple, inexpensive blood and urine tests. As part of its 2010 World Kidney Day awareness program, the physicians of Dallas Nephrology Associates (DNA) urge everyone to know and track their "kidney number." According to DNA physicians, tracking your "kidney number" is just as important as controlling cholesterol.

"A staggering 26 million Americans are living with chronic kidney disease, and millions more could be at risk," says Ruben L. Velez, M.D., F.A.C.P., president and CEO of DNA, one of the largest groups of practicing kidney specialists in the U.S. "But, because early CKD typically produces minimal symptoms, many people are unaware they are ill. As a result, we are seeing too many patients coming in too late, when there is not much we can do except offering dialysis or transplantation."
