Kidney Disease an Underestimated Killer

Kidney disease is so highly underestimated because the leading causes are common high blood pressure and diabetes. Keeping those two conditions under control (when they can be controlled by lifestyle choices) is a major contributor to avoiding kidney failure. Kidney failure isn’t called the silent killer for nothing. Love your Kidneys! Know what keeps them healthy. What keeps your kidneys healthy keeps your heart (and the rest of you) healthy too. So it’s the best buy one get 10 free deal around.

Thank you National Kidney Foundation of Utah & Idaho

Dear National Kidney Foundation of Utah & Idaho.
Recently, I applied for and received a financial emergency donation grant from the National Kidney Foundation of Utah & Idaho. It was applied to my mortgage payment at a time when it was severely needed. I don’t know what I would’ve done without your help. My only income is Social Security & Retirement, and when I require additional medications or hospital stays it does not cover all our expenses! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this donation/grant. I was able to catch up on some medical bills. I really appreciate all the NKF of Utah & Idaho does for kidney patients, with help like this, all the information you provide on kidney disease, etc.

Happy 4th of July!
