Kidney disease may not be top of mind for most Manitobans, but one in 10 Manitobans are living with kidney disease. Manitoba leads the country in rates of end-stage kidney disease. When kidneys stop working, life-sustaining dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed to stay alive. We want Manitobans to know about kidney disease before they get sick. Your doctor can find out how your kidneys are doing through blood and urine tests done at your regular, yearly check-up. Early diagnosis of kidney disease means more options for treatment.
