Standing up for kidney health
On the 7th of March, Fresenius Medical Care Malaysia organised an awareness event to celebrate World Kidney Day (13th of March). The event aimed to highlight the prevalence, risks and preventive measures of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) to the public. By showing their dedication the team handed out free water bottles sharing the message of “Start the day with a glass of water” – the theme behind this year’s World Kidney Day initiative.
Kidney disease is impacting an increasing number of Malaysians each year and is currently a growing world health issue. There are however several easy ways to reduce the risk of kidney disease. On World Kidney Day we call on everyone to check if they are at risk of kidney disease and encourage preventative behaviours.
