Kidney Health (Nephrology)
Millions of Americans suffer from kidney disease, also known as early renal insufficiency (ERI).
If you or someone you love suffers from ERI or has a kidney health problem, choose University of Maryland Capital Region Health to manage and treat your kidney issues.
Our kidney health program follows a proactive progression of treatment to slow renal function loss.
That’s because active management of kidney disease can help slow the progression of the disease and delay or prevent the onset of kidney failure.
You may be at a higher risk for kidney disease if you fall into one of the following groups:
- You have diabetes
- You have high blood pressure
- You have heart disease
- A family member has kidney disease
- You are African-American, Hispanic, Native American or Asian
- You are over 60
These, and many other factors, can increase the likelihood you have early renal insufficiency.
