53 Australians die every day from kidney disease.

Despite the number affected by the disease, over 1.5 million people have no idea they have it.

In a study by HCF, members claimed $57 million in kidney-health related expenses in 2017.

“We know about one in three Australian adults are at risk of kidney disease.”

Dr Phoon also answers your questions.
