It touts the fact that a simple urine test done by your doctor can detect early signs of Kidney disease. Well maybe they need to be telling doctors this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have diabetes, high blood pressure, family history of diabetes (which I found out after I was diagnosed), I'm overweight, and have other HIGH RISK factors that "SHOULD" prompt a doctor to say, "Let's keep an eye out for possible complications like Kidney Disease, etc." Over the last 30 years or so, I have seen family doctors, gastroenterologists, gastro surgeon, bariatric surgeon, cardiologists, Nephrologists, Diabetic Nutritionists and more.......and I've had tons of blood work, MRIs, Scans of all sorts, etc. and guess what...."""""NOT ONE""", """"NOT ONE"""" of them EVER even mentioned doing a urine test. NEVER!!!!!!
Could my CKD have been caught long before I reached the point I was at when I finally became so sick that I had blood work done and got diagnosed with CKD??? """"YES"""
Is it my fault that it wasn't found early? """NO""""!!!! But guess who's paying the price.......me (us).
