Chronic Kidney Disease Services
One out of every nine Americans has Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and another 20 million people are at risk. Through early detection and treatment, medical professionals can often keep the disease from worsening.
By encouraging patients to actively participate in their own management of their disease, the staff helps individuals control their disease, improve their quality of life and avoid hospitalizations.
The Education and Treatment Program includes:
- Close monitoring of kidney function
- Education in diet, exercise, medications, and signs and symptoms
- Fluid and electrolyte management
- Anemia treatment
- Support for patients and their families
- Cholesterol management
- Kidney bone disease management
- High blood pressure (hypertension) management
- Continual follow-up
Euclid Hospital also has a Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Support Group for patients, as well as their families, caregivers and other loved ones.
