Millions of Americans have a kidney or urologic problem, according to the Kidney & Urology Foundation of America. These problems can range from urinary tract infections (UTIs), diabetic nephropathy and kidney stones to inflammation of the kidney and urinary incontinence.
The Kidney & Urology Foundation of America provides multiple resources on its website for patients and caregivers.
If an individual is looking for a doctor, the group can refer them to board-certified physicians in their area at THIS LINK.
Individuals also can apply for emergency funds or grants for renal patients at THIS LINK.
The group provides links to CenterWatch, which provides patients information on clinical trials related to urological health. That link can be found HERE.
It also provides links to “kidney-friendly recipes,” which can be found HERE.
