This is Nik's story with kidney disease
Nik thought about his health generally – but not his kidneys specifically.
This year Nik is really focussed on March 26 - World Kidney Day - to spread the message ‘Kidney Health for All’ following an unexpected incident three years ago.
I’d like you to read Nik’s story so you can understand the importance of kidney health to you, your family and friends.
“Three years ago, on my bucks’ night, I slipped and hit my head. The next morning, I felt dizzy, nauseous, and just horrible all over, so my fiance, Brianna, and my Dad took me to the emergency room to check for concussion.
But this was no concussion or hangover. It was far worse. My kidneys were failing and my body was shutting down. Routine blood and urine tests had revealed that I had acute kidney disease and the next day I found myself meeting a renal specialist and being admitted to hospital.
