The importance of Kidney Health

Your kidneys are important to your health. They remove waste from your body and help to keep your blood pressure normal. But your kidneys are at risk for chronic disease and acute injury.

Chronic kidney disease is often called the “silent disease” because it has no symptoms in its early stages. It can go undetected until it is very advanced.

We need breakthroughs to prevent and treat kidney injury and disease.

The promise of Precision Medicine

The National Institutes of Health defines precision medicine as a new way of treating and preventing disease, which takes into account our genes, our environment, and our lifestyles.

Precision medicine will help doctors and researchers better predict which treatment and prevention steps will work on which groups of people.

It is different from a one-size-fits-all approach, which does not consider the differences between patients.
