Diabetes, Blood Pressure & Kidney Health Checks & Care in Your Community
Kidney Check is bringing kidney, diabetes and blood pressure checks to rural and remote Indigenous Communities across Canada. Mobile health-care teams will be looking for diabetes and high blood pressure, and looking at kidney health, so that they can find and help fix health problems as soon as possible.
The goal is to help keep kidneys healthy and care for any kidney health problems. The kidney check team will work with each person to build a kidney health plan that includes follow-up care or goals for keeping kidneys healthy.
Kidney Check is part of the Can-SOLVE CKD Network and is funded by a variety of local and national partners. Kidney Check is looking to do as many community visits as possible with current funding and is looking for ways to continue community visits into the future.
