Dr. Stephen Fadem, a nephrologist in Houston, Texas, is passionate about educating people who have chronic kidney disease and the physicians who care for them. He is a cancer survivor, and chemotherapy caused some damage to his kidney.
In this interview, Dr. Fadem discusses Essentials of Chronic Kidney Disease, a new book which he helped write and compile with several other physicians. He talks about how, in cooperation with your physician, you can take steps to either delay the progression of disease or, in many instances, prevent it. The earlier one addresses CKD, the better the chances of preserving kidney function. Knowledge is power, and this is a must-listen-to interview.
