Kidney March
In our quest to help find better medications for people with kidney disease, we are always on the lookout for patient input. Finerenone is a medication intended to slow the progression of kidney disease and reduce the risk of cardiac events in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and type 2 diabetes. It’s currently being evaluated for inclusion in drug plans across Canada. If you are a patient with CKD and type 2 diabetes or if you are their caregiver, we invite you to complete the following survey before May 30 to let us know about your experiences. Find the details here: survey.alchemer-ca.com/s3/50146521/Patient-Input-Survey-Finerenone ... See MoreSee Less

Did you know that chronic kidney disease can cause high blood pressure (i.e., hypertension) and high blood pressure can cause kidney disease? On this World Hypertension Day, we encourage you to know your blood pressure numbers and make the necessary lifestyle changes to help control your blood pressure. A normal blood pressure is not only essential for a healthy heart but it’s also one of the most important things you can do to slow down the progression of kidney disease. Learn more about hypertension and what you can do to avoid it here: kidney.ca/Kidney-Health/Newly-Diagnosed/Risk-Factors/High-Blood-Pressure-Kidney-Disease ... See MoreSee Less
