1 in 3 Australians are at risk kidney disease which can be deadly and incurable. If caught early, progression to kidney failure can be slowed or stopped.
This November sees the launch of the next phase of our early detection campaign, #nofilter. The campaign features Jaime, 33, a mother of three who lives in Brisbane and who contracted kidney disease while pregnant. She has dialysis three times a week at Logan hospital.
Jaime is passionate about advocating for early detection of kidney disease and in her own words supports #nofilter.
The first phase of #NoFilter featured Shane, who was diagnosed with kidney disease following detection of high blood pressure. The campaign showed the impact dialysis had on his and his family’s life. Tragically, Shane passed away from a heart attack in December, at just 48 years old.
As a tribute to him, his wife Jodie and five daughters primarily featured in the campaign to carry on the fight in Shane’s name and get the message out about early detection.
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
