Kidney and Diabetes Care
Kidney care and diabetes care often go hand-in-hand. People living with diabetes are at the highest risk of developing kidney disease. Your support of Lakeridge Health’s Kidney and Diabetes Care programs at our Oshawa and Whitby Hospitals means critical care for those living with kidney failure, and for those who are at risk.
When kidneys fail, there is no cure, but, dialysis can keep those living with kidney failure alive. Lakeridge Health’s regional dialysis program offers a full range of kidney care services to more than 1,000 families in the region.
In the Durham Region, approximately 40,000 people are living with diabetes. Meaning, access to the regional diabetes education program and Lakeridge Health’s Centre for Complex Diabetes Care makes a difference.
