Chronic Kidney Disease

A Healthy Diet Can Reduce Risk of Kidney Disease

Cleveland Clinic nephrologists are experts at evaluating and managing chronic kidney disease (CKD). An innovative team-care model addresses the life cycle of the disease. The Center for Chronic Kidney Disease focuses on empowering patients through education and on tailoring treatment to improve patients’ quality of life.

The center’s progressive model for managing CKD addresses patients’ needs at every stage of the disease. Experienced nephrologists and other staff members engage patients in customized care programs that help them understand their condition and participate in their own care. Treatment is focused on slowing the progression of CKD, identifying risks for cardiovascular disease and decreasing the risk of complications from surgery.

Additionally, the center is dedicated to cutting-edge CKD research regarding CKD’s relationship with other serious health problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and anemia.
