Did You Know?

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a condition in which your kidneys are damaged and cannot filter blood as well as healthy kidneys. Because of this, wastes from the blood remain in the body and may cause other health problems.

  • 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.
