Study Offers Hope for Kids With Kidney Disease

New hope is on the horizon for children suffering from chronic kidney disease, thanks to the results of a study released today that, for the first time, identifies some of the factors that can lead to kidney failure.

Dr. Bradley Warady, pediatric nephrologist of Children's Mercy was the co-principal investigator on the study, which looked at nearly 500 kids with chronic kidney disease over 10 years. Warady says many people don't realize kidney disease can have a profound effect on a child's growth and development.
