Kuwait has a small, relatively young population plagued with diabetes, hypertension, and obesity, making the risk of development and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) very high. The total dialysis population of Kuwait in 2015 was 1720. The Ministry of Health (MOH) has divided the country into six health regions. The total number of dialysis population has been increasing slowly from 1600 in 2013 to 1650 in 2014 to 1720 in 2015, with 4% increase from 2014 to 2015. We describe some salient features among the dialysis population in Kuwait.
