Kidney disease impacts the lives of thousands of Alaskans. In the last ten years, the number of Alaskans with End Stage Renal Failure, (no kidney function means the only treatment is dialysis or transplantation) has more than doubled!!

While a diagnosis of chronic kidney disease can be overwhelming, the Alaska Kidney Patients are here to help you sort through your options, answer your questions, and provide you with the resources and information you need to keep living your best life.

According to the CDC, almost 30 million Americans – more than 1 in 7 adults - may have chronic kidney disease, and most don’t know it. They reported that approximately 1 in 3 adults with diabetes and 1 in 5 adults with high blood pressure may have chronic kidney disease. Early detection and treatment, including lifestyle changes, may SLOW or PREVENT the progression to kidney failure.

Stories of Hope

With over 150 Alaskans waiting for a kidney transplant,

You have it in you to save a life.
