Happy World Kidney Day !!

 🌟 Theme for 2023: 🌟

➡️ Kidney Health for All - Preparing for the unexpected, supporting the vulnerable!

Best of luck to all the warriors who are fighting Kidney Disease.

Worldwide, Chronic kidney Disease (CKD affects >10% of the general population - amounting to >800 million individuals.

More than 1 in 7, that is 15% of US adults or 37 million people, are estimated to have CKD. As many as 9 in 10 adults with CKD do not know they have CKD. About 2 in 5 adults with severe CKD do not know they have CKD.

As transplant recipients/patients, it's extremely important to take good care of our kidneys. Kidneys take a hit due to the immunosuppressant meds that we have to take.

    Thanks @Sdey0522 It's been a weird week for me, so I didn't get a great chance to celebrate World Kidney Day. We've been in testing mode with my doctors about what's going on with my creatinine and my tacro levels. I think we finally have some answers today, so that is good, but there's still more testing to happen going forward!
