Dr. Carol DiRaimondo, an internist specializing in kidney diseases, gives some no-nonsense, straight-as-an-arrow talk about why it’s vitally important for people with kidney disease to take care of their heart—and how to do it. Because patients on dialysis are at a higher risk for heart disease, they will be especially empowered by this discussion. Find out what you can do to prevent heart disease or work your way towards a healthy heart in this information-packed show.
