1 in 3 Australians are at risk of kidney disease, which is a deadly and incurable disease. If caught early, progression to kidney failure can be slowed or stopped.
Our Awareness Campaign, titled #nofilter, shows the reality of life on dialysis and urges people to understand the risk factors for kidney disease so they can take active steps to manage their kidney health, and prevent a life with no filter.
Our campaign features Shane, who has kidney failure and spends four days every week on life-saving dialysis. Shane’s high blood pressure was the first indicator of his kidney disease, which was diagnosed two years later. Now 48 years old, Shane talks frankly about his journey to kidney failure and the changes it has wrought on his life and that of his family.
Currently, 1.5 million Australians are unaware they are living with early signs of kidney disease. People with diabetes and high blood pressure are at higher risk. Take the Kidney Risk Test now and we will help you understand your risk and vital next steps.Take the Kidney Risk Test
