Diabetes and Kidney Health

Do you or someone you know have diabetes? Did you know that signs of early kidney damage can develop in people with diabetes? If left untreated, this could lead to more damage or kidney failure. Learn more about diabetes and kidney health.

We’re on a mission to stand up and make noise. We hope you will too.

Kidney March is the only event of its kind in Canada. Now in its 6th year, this movement asks participants to do the most they can do in the fight against kidney disease and the appeal for organ donation spending 3 days on an inspirational 100 km journey. 

The cause is what brings people to the March, but the experience of the weekend is what keeps bringing people back. For friends, family, medical staff and people living with chronic illness, this March becomes their outlet. Somewhere they can make a difference on par with the level of frustration, anger and despair they feel for the burden of illness. It is also their hope. Not only for early detection and a cure for kidney disease, but also for ground breaking advancements in organ transplantation.

The Kidney Foundation encourages anyone who has a kidney connection or would like to take part in a transformative event to sign up. Let the wave of Kidney March, and all the people who make up this great community, embrace you in making the biggest difference you’ve ever made. It’s not too late to register at kidneymarch.ca or call 1.866.9KMARCH.

New Online Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Clinical Pathway for Primary Care Providers

The Interdisciplinary Chronic Disease Collaboration, Northern and Southern Alberta Renal Programs, Alberta Health Services and key CKD stakeholders (primary care physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and nephrologists) have developed an online CKD Clinical Pathway for primary care providers.  This pathway will assist primary care givers in the diagnosis, medical management and referral of adults with CKD in line with best practices as documented in local and national guidelines. The pathway can be accessed at www.ckdpathway.ca. It is also a great resource for patients as they are an advocate in their own health.
