Kidney Disease & Disorders

One in nine Americans - or approximately 20 million people - suffers from one of several forms of chronic kidney disease according to the National Kidney Foundation. Another 20 million are facing an increased risk. While diabetes is a leading cause of developing kidney disease, it can also be cause by high blood pressure or be a congenital or inherited condition.
