Kidneys are critical to your overall health.
Most people with chronic kidney disease do not know they have it.
Kidney failure occurs in African Americans at 3x the rate of Caucasians.
Did you know?
Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease.
That’s why it’s our first area of focus.
Diabetes (sugar) is the #1 cause of kidney disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 1 out of every 3 adults with type 2 diabetes has chronic kidney disease.2
If you have type 2 diabetes (high blood sugar), it’s important to find out if you have a problem with your kidneys early. If diagnosed sooner, you may be able to avoid disease progression, kidney failure, the need for dialysis or transplantation later on.
Find out your risk for progression. It starts with a simple blood test.
If you are an adult who has type 2 diabetes, and have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, you’ll want to find out your individual risk for disease progression.
That’s what KidneyIntelXTM is designed to do.
KidneyIntelX only requires a simple blood test.
You and your doctor will receive an easy-to-understand, custom risk score, identifying whether you are at low, intermediate or high risk for kidney disease progression or kidney failure. By getting this risk assessment early, you’ll be in the driver’s seat, having more options for how to slow disease progression.

Your kidney health outlook. Excellent.
The good news: through KidneyIntelX, most adults with type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease find out that they are at relatively low risk for kidney disease progression.
Even if you are at higher risk, by catching the disease in its earliest stages, you have more control over what to do next, including adjusting your health habits (e.g., eating, activity level, stopping smoking), taking new medications that help slow disease progression to avoid further harm, and/or seeing other doctors (e.g., nephrologist, endocrinologist).
Approximately 50% of patients tested with KidneyIntelX are expected to receive a low-risk score.
Approximately 35% of patients tested with KidneyIntelX are expected to receive an intermediate risk score.
Approximately 15% of patients tested with KidneyIntelX are expected to receive a high-risk score, which means that they have a 60% or higher chance of having progressive decline in kidney function over the next five years.
Please avoid using KidneyIntelX if you are taking the medication, ENBREL.
