BC Renal Agency raises glass of water for healthy kidneys at Provincial Legislature Canadaiclaron
Ron Walker, President of the British Columbia (BC) branch of the Kidney Foundation of Canada, and Adeera Levin, ISN President Elect and Executive director of the B.C. Renal Agency attended a session at the Legislative Assembly during this World Kidney Day.
The Kidney Foundation of Canada, which is celebrating 50 years of service, is launching a new online risk assessment tool at kidney.ca. They took the opportunity to raise awareness about kidney health and talk about the importance of organ donation.
It is estimated that one in ten British Columbians has kidney disease, but most people don’t even know it. More than 90 percent of the people with early stage kidney disease have no symptoms at all. Those with early stage kidney disease won’t even realize it until their kidneys begin to fail.
