Description

Biomedical test results from the 2012–13 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey found that almost 1 in 5 Indigenous Australian adults showed signs of chronic kidney disease.

This report shows that the likelihood of having chronic kidney disease increases with age, and is higher among people with high blood pressure or diabetes, and among those living in remote areas. It also shows that rates of hospitalisation for kidney disease or treatment for end-stage kidney disease among Indigenous Australians tends to be highest in remote areas, particularly in Central Australia.
