Kidney Education Material available in 19 languages!

The number of patients suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is on the rise. Alarmingly, at least 10% of the adult population is estimated to be already suffering from CKD and it is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Stage 5 of CKD, the last and most life threatening stage, is so incapacitating that life without dialysis or kidney transplant is not possible. Such treatment is prohibitively expensive and only about 10% of Indian patients can afford it. The surest option is its prevention!

However, ignorance about kidney diseases is widespread. An important step towards fighting this ignorance is publishing of books and websites on kidney diseases in multiple languages for the benefit of patients and lay persons. These books and websites, prepared by a team of dedicated nephrologists (kidney specialists), provide comprehensive information on kidney diseases and their prevention to patients, their families, health professionals and all others.
