Today is the first day of American Diabetes Month! Did you know one in three adults with diabetes develops kidney disease?

Through our partnership with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), we’re building awareness of the connection between two of the most common chronic conditions worldwide—diabetes and kidney disease. Check out the Living With Diabetes: Kidney Care website we created with the ADA filled with resources for preventing and managing kidney disease for patients with diabetes:


Happy Nephrology Nurses Week! Advanced Nephrology Associates is grateful to all nurses for their compassion and efforts!


​ 1. Kidney transplant numbers are low

​Of the approximately 90,000 U.S. patients waiting for a kidney, only 20 percent of them will actually get the opportunity.

2. One kidney is enough

​Although most people are born with two kidneys, you can still live a full, healthy life with only one functioning kidney.

​ 3. Common health issues are the leading cause of kidney disease

​Diabetes and high blood pressure — issues that affect many people — cause approximately 44% of kidney failure cases in the U.S.

​ 4.Too many people suffer from kidney disease

​Approximately 13% of adults in the U.S. suffer from a kidney disease.

​ 5.Kidney disease targets a certain age group

​Although kidney disease affects people from all age groups, people over 60 have the highest odds of developing it.


All our offices were finally able to get together for a team meeting and lunch! Who knew we had so many smiling faces under those masks.


Registration is open! Join us for our VIRTUAL Kidney Action Week - connecting you with kidney patients, top nephrologists, renal dietitians, caregivers and other kidney experts. Register today at:

Today is it is a global campaign aimed at raising awareness of the importance of our kidneys.

💥Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is common and harmful: 1 out of 10 adult people worldwide have it, and if left untreated it can be deadly.
💥While early detection allows for disease care and management to help prevent morbidity and mortality, and improve cost effectiveness and sustainability, kidney disease related mortality continues to increase yearly and is projected to be the 5th leading cause of death by 2040.
