Millions of Americans have a kidney or urologic problem. These problems include, but are not limited to urinary tract infections, diabetic nephropathy, kidney stones, enlarged prostate, nephritis (inflammation of the kidney), polycystic kidney disease, urinary incontinence, and prostate cancer. At least 50 million Americans have hypertension, or high blood pressure, which is the second leading cause of kidney failure.
The Kidney & Urology Foundation of America has had a long tradition of working personally with patients and families to guide them through the hard times.
We are here to help.
As a person with kidney failure, you have certain rights and responsibilities.
