Kidney disease is the 9th leading killer in the USA. Over 2 million patients worldwide are currently on dialysis with millions of patients trying to decide if dialysis is the best treatment. If kidney disease progression cannot be slowed or managed, then dialysis is the most common treatment used including over 600,000 patients currently on dialysis in the USA.

Middleton Wisconsin, February 19, 2024, Kidney Disease is a very serious condition that often leads to  dialysis.
