Abstract
These bookmarks state: Your kidney count is a number that your doctor can tell you that could save your life. Your kidney count should be 90 or above. In South Carolina, 1 in 8 people has kidney disease. More than 70 percent of South Carolinians on dialysis are African-American. If you have diabetes or high blood pressure, you are at risk for kidney disease. Kidney disease can be prevented or delayed.
