Your Kidney Doctor Specialist: How To Have A Valuable Appointment

Episode 094: Your Kidney Doctor Specialist: How To Have A Valuable Appointment. A referral to a kidney doctor specialist is one of the first (and important) steps in taking care of your kidney health and managing your chronic kidney disease. Seeing a new kidney doctor specialist (Nephrologist) about a new health condition can be very overwhelming. And if you’ve already been seeing your kidney doctor specialist, it may not be overwhelming but you might feel that your appointments aren’t going the way you’d like them to. Renal Dietitian Jen Hernandez and Kidney Health Coach James Fabin discuss how to get the most out of your appointment, what questions to ask when diagnosed with kidney disease, and how to take a proactive role in your chronic kidney disease treatment strategy.

Jen's Mission:

To simplify the nutritional needs for individuals with chronic kidney disease, and to decrease the prevalence of kidney disease by providing nutrition education including realistic and wholesome lifestyle changes.

Affiliate Links

Some companies operate affiliate programs, meaning if you purchase the product or service by following a link on our site we could receive a commission. There are often conditions on time, visits and other factors that frequently negate any commission.  We use a tool that automatically checks if link destinations have affiliate programs available. If they do, the tool modifies the link to use the available program.

 

Our main focus is to provide convenient links to reputable sources for the product/service we use and believe in. Operating an affiliate program is not a condition for linking: keen pricing, service, and reputation is. We use the commission we receive to support the site, video production, and donate to the National Kidney Fund. It also allows us to reduce our reliance on advertising.
