    Safe Kidney Care
    This website was established as a general resource for people with chronic kidney disease, but who do not require dialysis or transplant. It is not intended to be a substitute for the care of an informed health care provider. Since every patient is different, some of the information may not be suitable for all those who visit the site. Please discuss the information you discover on this website with your healthcare provider so you can work together with them to develop a care plan that is best for you.  Click here for more information.

    ckd-interceptAt the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), we recognize that caring about patients is the practitioner’s top priority. But the volume of patients in today’s healthcare environment challenges capacities and leaves practitioners constantly seeking better knowledge to maintain and improve the quality of care.

    That is why we’re launching CKDintercept, an exciting new initiative to provide the knowledge and tools to alter chronic kidney disease (CKD) outcomes, improve patients’ quality of life, and have an impact on CKD healthcare spending nationwide. Early diagnosis and treatment can slow or stop the progression of CKD as well as avoid outlays of billions in healthcare dollars for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) care.
