About the Disease
Hemolytic uremic syndrome is a rare condition that occurs when damaged red blood cells form clots and cause a life-threatening kidney injury. Subtypes include: shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) hemolytic uremic syndrome (typical), atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome, and streptococcal pneumonia associated hemolytic uremic syndrome.
Patients can receive free education and support services.
The National Kidney Foundation conducts research and provides education and support for all people affected by kidney disease.
