What's New?

February is Heart Month in Canada

High blood pressure (also called hypertension) may cause chronic kidney disease. The reverse is also true: chronic kidney disease frequently causes high blood pressure. So preserving your heart may help preserve your kidney. Learn more about the link between kidney disease and heart disease.

New statistics on transplant, organ donation available

The Canadian Institute for Health Information has released its annual dialysis and organ donation statistics, highlighting data that shows the risk of patients being hospitalized is highest in their first week of dialysis, and that patients younger than 18 are at highest risk. Also available is the annual Canadian Organ Replacement Register, 2006 to 2015, which provides annual statistics including data tables and figures, CIHI snapshot, methodology notes and data quality documentation.

Families share PKD experience in video series

The Kidney Foundation has developed a series of videos about polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and its impact on families, both those personally affected and those offering love and support. Three families, including that of National President Paul Kidston, share their personal journeys and discuss their engagement with the Foundation. We invite you to meet them.
