If you find yourself battling chronic kidney disease (also known as CKD or renal disease) or sudden kidney failure, we will work with you to treat the underlying conditions and improve your quality of life. The most-common causes of kidney disorders include uncontrolled high blood pressure or unmanaged diabetes present over many years.

Symptoms of kidney disease include feeling extremely tired, nausea or vomiting, headaches, weight loss or loss of appetite, edema, and urinating less than normal. Keep in mind that symptoms may not occur until months – or even years – after your kidneys start to fail.

If you're concerned that you may be suffering from or likely to develop kidney disease, talk to your doctor about kidney testing. Blood tests and urinalysis can detect the early stages of kidney disease. With the help of a kidney specialist, many people successfully manage their disease with medication and lifestyle changes, such as altered diet plans and increased exercise.
