33 percent quiz graphic

Are YOU in the 33%?

1 in 3 adults in the United States are at risk of life-threatening kidney disease. That is over 37 MILLION individuals! Unbelievably, most of these people don't even know they have kidney disease. We want to change that. 


If you or a family member have one or more risk factors, go to MinuteForYourKidneys.org today and find out what to do next and how to talk to your doctor. 


Some possible risk factors you and your loved ones should be aware of:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Overweight or Obese
  • Family history of kidney disease. 


Take the First Step:

The first step to preventing kidney disease is knowing your risk. With one minute to spare, go to minuteforyourkidneys.org and understand your risk for developing kidney disease. When was the last time a minute held so much value?
