Some facts about Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD):

 

  • Over 20 million Americans are coping with the devastating illness of chronic kidney disease, and 6 million are currently undiagnosed.
  • Diabetes and hypertension are the primary causes of chronic kidney disease; however, when you pair them with obesity your chance of being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease significantly increases.
  • Approximately 40% of the dialysis patient population is secondary to diabetes.
  • Out of the estimated 320 million people that reside in the United States, the highest percentage that are diagnosed with diabetes are minorities.
  • Paradoxically, Native Americans (an estimated 4.4 million) are the primary minority shareholders of diabetes in the United States. This number is alarming when you consider that this populace accounts for a mere one percent of the total U.S. population.
  • African Americans are second to Native Americans, and Hispanics, regardless of their subgroups, are third.
  • Equally important is blood pressure control. Hypertension and diabetes often occur simultaneously and lead to chronic kidney disease requiring dialysis. Approximately 11 million Americans are diagnosed with both diseases, but do not receive the medical treatment that is required.
