WJTV News Channel 12 - Free Screening for Kidney Disease

Free Screening for Kidney Disease

Posted: Updated:
Jackson -

Kidney disease is often referred to as the "silent" disease.

Early kidney disease has no symptoms.

You can't feel that you have it, so it is important to know if you are at risk for kidney disease so  you can get tested.

You are considered at risk for kidney disease if any of the following criteria apply:  high blood pressure, diabetes, or a family history of high blood pressure, diabetes or kidney disease.

Kidney disease can be treated if caught in the early stages.

A free screening will be held today in the Conference Center at the Jackson Medical Mall from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Tests include blood pressure, blood sugar, urinalysis, full renal panel, complete blood count and cholesterol check.
