SEPTEMBER 30, 2021, CLEVELAND, OH / Journey Biosciences, Inc., a biotechnology company with an innovative predictive screening technology for high risk kidney complications associated with diabetes, today announced their company launch and introduction of their flagship product, NaviDKD®.

"Currently, more than 34 million Americans have diabetes. 1 out of 3 will develop kidney disease," said Adam Graybill, Chief Executive Officer of Journey Biosciences. "Most will develop complications without outward signs or symptoms. That's where Journey Biosciences and NaviDKD screening can make a difference in how we treat diabetes, changing the conversation from reactive to proactive. NaviDKD helps proactively identify those risks so people with diabetes and their healthcare team can take action now."

Available to both health care professionals and people with diabetes, NaviDKD can be requested by visiting or consulting with your healthcare professional.
