Patients & Families

At Akebia, we work to help better the lives of people impacted by kidney disease. We count ourselves among the broad renal community that is invested in kidney health and we work collaboratively with multiple advocacy organizations. Visit any of the sites below to learn more and engage with the patient and advocacy community.  

Understanding Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a serious and life-altering illness that is persistent, progressive, and irreversible.

Patient Resources

We recognize that many patients today face financial obstacles that keep them from accessing important medications. We believe these medications should be available to every patient who needs them. In the United States, we have put in place a patient services program that provides one-on-one support to help communicate individual benefits and available resources.

For more information about our AkebiaCares program, please call (855) 686-8601 or visit the AkebiaCares webpage.
