What is Chronic Kidney Disease?

According to the National Kidney Foundation, Chronic Kidney Disease affects 26 million Americans and many more are at risk. Chronic Kidney Disease includes conditions that are harmful to the kidneys, prohibiting them from functioning correctly. If left untreated, Chronic Kidney Disease can lead to dialysis or kidney transplant, and a myriad of other health issues including heart disease—the number one killer of men and women in the U.S.

Risk factors for Chronic Kidney Disease include diabetes, hypertension and a family history of kidney failure. Additionally, according to the National Kidney Foundation, up to two-thirds of Chronic Kidney Disease cases are caused by diabetes and high blood pressure. If you have Chronic Kidney Disease, nephrologist, Dr. Arbogast, is committed to providing exceptional care and working with you to develop the most effective treatment plan.

When is dialysis necessary?

Dialysis helps keep the body in balance when kidney function drops below 10 to 15 percent. Dialysis essentially replaces kidney function and removes unwanted waste from the body. The White-Wilson Nephrology Clinic helps patients manage dialysis treatment, with plans to eventually open the White-Wilson Dialysis Center in Fort Walton Beach.
