A survey conducted by The Harris Poll and commissioned by the National Kidney Foundation found that 46% of 2,000 American adults did not know that diabetes is tied to an increased risk for kidney failure, 31% did not know that diabetes increases kidney disease risk and 14% of survey participants who had diabetes were either "unsure" or "did not believe" that diabetes increases the risk of kidney disease. The poll also found that younger adults were more likely to be wrong or unsure about the association of diabetes and kidney disease.
