Damaged kidneys are unable to remove waste. Kidney disease damage may occur slowly over many years and many people do not show any symptoms until their kidney disease is advanced. If you have diabetes, hypertension or a close family member with kidney disease, you are at higher risk of developing the disease, which may be caused by a genetic problem, injuries or drugs, but blood and urine tests are the only way to know. Dr. Supriya Gerardine, medical fellow at the Irving Sherwood Wright Center, will discuss diagnosing and treating kidney disease, as well as what the future may hold for patients.
