We have produced this section about kidney health as a resource for people who have early signs of possible kidney problems and for the health care professionals who provide care for them. Here you can learn about why kidney performance may begin to decline and who is at risk, how kidney performance is measured and why it is important to check it regularly. You can see and hear 45 people sharing their stories about their kidney health. They talk about how they found out that they have early signs of kidney problems, their experiences of having regular check-ups, their information preferences, and the ways in which they try to look after their health. We hope you find the information helpful.
This section is based on research by the Health Experiences Research Group.
