Kidney Disease

While anyone can develop kidney disease, you may be at a greater risk for kidney infection if you associate with any of the following risk factors:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • A family history of kidney disease
  • Older age (60+)
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • African-American, Asian-American or Native American

CKD can lead to renal failure if not treated properly. Beginning stages of kidney disease frequently go unnoticed, so talk to your primary care provider if you believe you are at risk. Managing your blood pressure and blood sugar levels are key recommendations for the prevention of kidney disease. 


Jackson Purchase Medical Center houses one nephrologist who specializes in acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease.
