Chronic Kidney Disease and Treatment Options
Queen's Speaking of Health lecture (FREE) - Wed., Aug. 29, 2018

  

If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, poor circulation or family members with kidney disease, you could be at risk for chronic kidney disease. 30 million American adults have it, according to the National Kidney Foundation, and millions of others are at risk. Chronic kidney disease is a silent, progressive disease that can lead to the loss of kidney function.

 

Learn more with transplant nephrologist Amudha Palanisamy, MD, and transplant surgeon Makoto Ogihara, MD.
