At Tricida, we believe we have an opportunity to make a real impact for patients suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) and metabolic acidosis. An estimated 3 million people in the United Stated suffer from later stage CKD and metabolic acidosis. Metabolic acidosis is a serious condition that can cause muscle wasting, bone loss and, if left untreated, further progression of CKD. We’re working hard to provide the potential first FDA-approved chronic treatment to help these patients and help slow the progression of CKD.
Volunteering and giving are important elements of our core values, and we proudly support programs and offer resources for advocacy groups, healthcare providers, and our local community.
Tricida is a proud sponsor of the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Northern California Chapter. Our Tricida team joined our local community during the NKF San Francisco Annual Kidney Walk to support patients and their families and help raise much needed dollars to support disease research. Our organization as a whole and over 80% of our employees contributed financially to this important cause.
As we strive to improve the lives of CKD patients with metabolic acidosis, we are a proud sponsor of KDIGO, the global nonprofit organization developing and implementing evidence-based clinical practice guidelines in kidney disease.
We have developed resources for physicians to better understand the link between metabolic acidosis and CKD.

Neph+ is a downloadable app that includes an education resource that provides a quantitative understanding of the eight kidney failure risk factors, including serum bicarbonate, that predict patients’ 2- and 5-year risk of progression to end-stage renal disease.
