1 in 3 adults with diabetes and 1 in 5 adults with high blood pressure may have kidney disease. But 90% of people don’t know they have kidney disease. Meanwhile, kidney disease is a silent disease as there are often no warning signs in the early stages. Most patients start to develop symptoms when they reach Stage 4 of Chronic Kidney Disease (loss of more than 70% of kidney function) or Stage 5 (loss of more than 85% of kidney function). In other words, symptoms do not occur until most kidney function has been lost. When some patients become aware of their kidney disease, they may already be in the late stages of kidney disease, requiring dialysis or kidney transplantation. Early detection of kidney disease and managed appropriately, the deterioration in kidney function can be reduced by as much as 50%. Kidney disease is treatable and preventable.
