Kidney Health Risk Assessment at B’More Healthy Expo

The National Kidney Foundation of Maryland’s free public awareness tool will identify adults at risk for chronic kidney disease, which affects one in nine Americans – 26 million people.

The test uses a simple Body Mass Index calculation, blood pressure measurement and six-question questionnaire to make participants aware of their risk factors and how to manage them.

Individuals not at risk will be given educational materials about maintaining good health, while those at risk will be directed to further screenings and advised to talk to medical professionals. NKF-MD also will have dietitians on-site to educate people about nutrition and kidney disease.

One in three Americans over age 20 – 73 million people – are at risk for kidney disease, and the risk increases to one in two over the course of a lifetime. Most people affected do not realize it until the condition has progressed. In fact, 181 of the 769 people screened last year by NKF-MD demonstrated significant results.

The National Kidney Foundation of Maryland, serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of West Virginia, is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of kidney and urinary tract diseases.
