Chronic Kidney Disease Education

Education is a key component when it comes to understanding disease management. As part of our mission at South Palm Beach Nephrology, we offer Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) education in a professional and friendly atmosphere.

We believe that enabling patients with knowledge about their kidney condition gives them and their family member’s a sense of control over their own health and well being. When knowing the causes of Chronic Kidney Disease, many times patients can slow down or ever stop the progression of the disease. Our CKD education can offer information on:

  • Symptoms of Chronic Kidney Disease
  • How kidney function is measured
  • Kidney pathology
  • Medications to avoid that can hurt the kidneys
  • General nutrition information
  • High risk groups for CKD
  • Acute kidney injury vs. Chronic kidney disease
  • Treatment options for End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) – transplant, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis
  • Hemodialysis access

Our CKD education sessions are provided on an on-going basis at our office locations. An appointment can be scheduled for one of these sessions at the office where you see your physician.
