KIDNEY DISEASE AFFECTS CHILDREN
The International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA) works to raise awareness that kidney disease in children is real and widespread. Ask the families and doctors who are desperately trying to treat their sick children and their Little Kidneys.
Kidney disease in kids is complicated and sometimes results from other medical conditions or can cause other serious health issues. A child with polycystic kidney disease will never receive the best treatment if a doctor does not know the symptoms. With early diagnosis and treatment, it is possible to slow or stop the progression of kidney problems and disease, but ONLY IF families have access to treatment and trained doctors who fully understand the complexity of kidney disease.
