Do you know . . .

World Kidney Day is Thursday 13 March 2008 and this year will promote the theme of Amazing Kidneys.

Our kidneys filter 200 litres of blood daily and 73,000 litres annually - twice the amount of water it takes to fill the average backyard swimming pool.

Have a read of Kidney Health Australia's
February on-line bulletin.

Wherever we live, an awareness of chronic kidney disease is something we all need to have. What will you do to ensure your kidney health today?
