Dr. Elaine Kaptein is a nephrologist at USC. She has seen it all when dealing with people who have kidney disease. A common question she gets from patients is, “When should I go to the Emergency Room, and when should I wait?” Dr. Kaptein explains what constitutes an Emergency, and what is essential to bring and to know to save your life. Lori and Dr. Kaptein also share strategies for staying out of the ER, and emphasize the importance of being your own advocate. Listen to this life-saving interview.
