Kidney disease may not be top of mind for most Manitobans, but one in 10 Manitobans are living with kidney disease. In fact, Manitoba leads the country in rates of end-stage kidney disease. When kidneys stop working, life-sustaining dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed to stay alive.

We want Manitobans to know about kidney disease, before they get sick. A doctor can find out how your kidneys are doing through blood and urine tests done at regular, yearly check-ups. Early diagnosis of kidney disease means more options for treatment.

Visit kidneycoach.ca to see the Kidney Health Playbook featuring eight plays to keep kidneys healthy. Take a kidney quiz and use the risk checklist to find out how you might be impacted by kidney disease.

Let’s get your kidneys into shape and keep them healthy for as long as possible. Visit kidneycoach.ca for more information.
