Kidneys perform many functions:
You have CKD when your kidneys are irreversibly damaged and cannot filter blood properly. Often, there are no symptoms until the advanced stages, so early recognition and treatment is essential.
CKD is detected through blood and urine lab tests over time. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and creatinine are common tests used to measure your level of kidney function and determine the stage of kidney disease.
People at increased risk for CKD are those with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease or a family history of kidney problems.
ENA offers a multi-disciplinary team of general, interventional and transplant nephrologists, advanced practitioner professionals, and highly trained nurses. We also have our own laboratories and a nationally recognized clinical research program. Our goal is to provide early detection and optimal management of CKD with the focus on halting or slowing progression towards ESKD.
At Eastern Nephrology Associates, our top priorities are always our patients’ and staff’s safety and well-being. Through this current pandemic, we recognize the need for continued patient care and remain open to serve patients in need.Learn More
