What is the National Kidney Foundation?
The National Kidney Foundation (NKF), a major voluntary nonprofit health organization, is dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by kidney disease and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation. The NKF’s Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI™) developed guidelines that help your doctor and health care team make important decisions about your medical treatment. If you have questions, you should speak to your doctor of the health care team at your treatment center. Litholink’s CKD Program is based upon these guidelines. Litholink has partnered with the National Kidney Foundation to bring education materials to you.
