At Jacksonville Nephrology we specialize in kidney disease and hypertension. According to the National Kidney Foundation, 26 million Americans have Chronic Kidney Disease and millions of others are at an increased risk. Therefore you may already know someone affected by this disease. If left untreated Chronic Kidney Disease can progress to kidney failure with need for Dialysis or Kidney Transplant. As with most conditions if detected early, kidney disease can be managed appropriately to limit the risk of leading to more complicated conditions.
