Resources and support for the Hispanic chronic kidney disease community in the United States.

Hello again! In our previous articles, we have explored different aspects related to chronic renal failure, including the management of emotional and psychological stress. This time, we want to highlight the importance of the resources and support available to the Hispanic community living with this disease in the U.S. Join us in this new chapter of our journey towards a healthy and connected kidney life!


Kidney Health Organizations and Foundations


In the United States, there are several organizations and foundations that provide resources and support for people with chronic kidney disease. Some of these include:

  • National Kidney Foundation: This organization offers information, educational programs, support groups and patient navigation services for the Hispanic community. Their website has resources in Spanish and valuable information about kidney disease, healthy living tips and opportunities for involvement.
  • American Association of Kidney Patients: This association provides support, education and advocacy for kidney patients. They offer resources in Spanish, including publications, educational videos and community outreach events.
  • National Kidney Disease Education Program: This program, run by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), offers educational materials, interactive tools and resources for patients and health care professionals. Its goal is to increase awareness of kidney disease and promote early detection.

Support groups and online communities


In addition to organizations, there are in-person support groups and online communities where people with chronic kidney disease can connect with other individuals going through similar experiences. These spaces provide invaluable support, sharing information, advice and personal experiences. Some options include local support groups, online forums and social networks dedicated to the kidney community.

Cultural and Spanish-language resources:


It is important to note that many of these resources and organizations have information and materials in Spanish. This allows easier access to information and support for those who prefer or need to receive information in their native language. In addition, many health professionals also offer services in Spanish and are committed to addressing the specific needs of the Hispanic community.

Building a united community


Dear friends, let us remember that we are not alone in our fight against chronic kidney disease. There is a wide range of resources and support available to the Hispanic community in the United States. Let us take advantage of these resources and connect with others who are going through similar experiences. Together, we can learn, share, find comfort and empower ourselves on our path to a healthy kidney life. Let’s keep moving forward, taking advantage of the support available to us and building a community united in the pursuit of a full and connected kidney life.
