Kidney Health Australia Evidence Report 2021
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), diabetes and cardiovascular disease are each independently serious diseases, affecting millions of Australians. They each require careful management and place a large burden on the Australian health system, on individuals and on families.
For persons with existing diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease, developing chronic kidney disease causes a reduction in quality of life, on top of increased risks of complications, hospitalisations and death.
Our evidence report, Make the Link: Diabetes, Kidneys and Heart, demonstrates the importance of these links.
