Women and Renal Disease

Healthcare News | 2014-03-10


Renal (kidney) disease, a global public-health concern, impacts the ability of the kidneys to clear waste and excess fluid from the body.1 Its prevalence is closely aligned with Type 2 diabetes. About 40% of women with diabetes will develop chronic kidney disease (CKD), which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and other complications of diabetes.2

CKD presents unique challenges to women’s health across all stages of life.
