Free kidney disease screenings being offered Wednesday

Posted by wlpo on September 7, 2014

Your kidneys are important, that’s why you shouldn’t wait until you’re experiencing kidney failure to be screened for kidney disease. Free kidney disease screenings are being offered Wednesday at the Peru Mall. The screenings and visit by the KidneyMobile are sponsored by the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois and Illinois Valley Community Hospital.

During the screening, you’ll have your blood pressure and blood sugar checked, you will be weighed and you’ll give a urine sample. A nurse will tell you if you have signs of kidney disease. Fernandez says the testing takes about an hour. You’ll also be able to tour the Kidney Mobile and learn more about what it does for the body.

The screenings are from 10am until 2pm in the IVCH Room near Jo-Ann Fabrics in the mall. It’s recommended that you schedule an appointment.
