Kidney Disease

Almost 1.7 million Australians suffer from kidney disease, with more than 16,000 of these sadly succumbing to their complications each year.

Our kidneys are vital to our wellbeing, helping to filter our blood and eliminate waste products.

If kidney disease is found early enough, medication, dietary and lifestyle changes can help; but once the disease is advanced, ongoing dialysis may be needed to regularly remove waste and fluid from the body or a successful kidney transplant can help achieve longer-term quality of life.

Together with our Group charity Kidney Transplant & Diabetes Research Australia, we are committed to finding new ways to treat kidney disease, enhance organ transplantation and ultimately eliminate this disease from our community.
