Chronic kidney disease is more common than you might think

Posted at 2:35 PM, Feb 20, 2020

Chronic kidney disease is when your kidneys can`t filter waste and toxins as well as they should.

It's a gradual process that can eventually lead to kidney failure and unfortunately, once it begins, it's irreversible. When a patient has experienced kidney failure, the options they have for their best possible quality of life are either dialysis or a transplant.

Nephrology Associates of Utah is a team of nephrology board-certified physicians and advanced practitioners dedicated to improving patients' quality of life by limiting the progression of chronic kidney disease through ongoing kidney research, clinical methodology, and patient service.
