I just read a great article, my cut/pastes doesn't seem to work here. The Nephrologist talked about kidney function and how many Dr. avoid the discussion with patients, many patients don't even know there's a problem with kidney function. Thus, medicines that are prescribed also ignore the CKD issue. So many meds affect the kidneys. A simple conversation about high creatinine or low GFR regarding salt, water intake, exercise and protein intake could truly help many CKD patients. There were 33 comments following this article from health care professionals weighing in on the data. If interested, this article is in Medscape online under the heading Nephrology. There are many great discussions here.
