Kidney disease is a major health concern worldwide. It’s estimated that 1 in 3 American adults are at risk of developing kidney disease, and 26 million adults already have kidney disease. Many are undiagnosed. Because kidney disease can go undetected until it’s too late, effective and consistent diagnosis is essential. Physicians on Mayo Clinic’s Rochester, Minn., campus – one of the world’s leading kidney disease centers – are at the forefront of an effort to standardize the diagnosis of kidney disease.
