When I was a new grad, I thought I’d never master CKD. It was so stressful because, as you probably know very well, unmanaged CKD can lead to kidney failure.
But the more I’ve learned and practiced medicine, the easier it gets. And now? I’m obsessed with CKD — it’s one of my favorite clinical topics to explore these days.
So hopefully in this week’s video, I can share some shortcuts to understanding CKD and making patient assessment and care easier.
✅ The basics of staging CKD
✅ When should you think about referring to nephrology?
✅ Assessment parameters for renal problems that you absolutely need to know
And, of course, more pearls of practice!
