WHEN TO CONSULT A NEPHROLOGIST

When to consult a Nephrologist is a common question many people have as Chronic Kidney Disease is often referred to as “the silent killer” because many patients have little to no symptoms when they are diagnosed. If you are experiencing abnormal heart rhythms, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, anemia, fatigue, or have a consistently metallic taste in your mouth, these are all symptoms of a kidney issue and it is recommended that you schedule an appointment with a Primary Care Practitioner who will then refer you to a Nephrologist if you do indeed have a serious kidney issue. Certain factors can also make particular individuals more at risk to kidney diseases such as:

  • Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • A family history of kidney disease
  • Heart diseases
