Six out of 10 Americans will develop kidney disease in their lifetime, according to a new study, and the National Kidney Foundation says there's an easy way to catch problems early: A simple pee-in-the-cup test once a year if you're age 60 or older.
This can't be good. The New York Times reports that new research at John Hopkins University shows that women are less likely to receive kidney transplants than men. This effects older women primarily, even though they recuperate just as well or better than older men after the surgery.
