Health Disparities in Chronic Kidney Disease The More We Know Community Show with Dr. Sylvia

    • Society & Culture

March is National Kidney Month and March 10th is World Kidney Day.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid published these details in an April 2021 report entitled Chronic Kidney Disease Disparities:
“Racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities exist in the quality of primary care for patients with chronic kidney disease and CKD risk factors.
Low-income, racial, and ethnic minority patients are less likely to receive recommended care related to CKD risk factors and are less likely to reduce CKD risk through recommended treatment goals (blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol control).
Racial and ethnic minorities are also more likely to progress from CKD to end-stage renal disease (ESRD)—also known as end-stage kidney disease (ESKD)—and are less likely to have been under the care of a nephrologist before starting dialysis.”
My guests Ursula Sharp and Virginia Clay share their journey living with chronic kidney disease, their treatment, and the critical factors that enable them to live a good quality of life.  Dr. Prayus Tailor, MD, FASN: Nephrologist, Medical Director, FKC Brandywine Home Therapies Newark, Delaware, and Jed Dadson: Marketing leader in Renal Care discuss what you need to know about chronic kidney disease, the treatment pathways, and the barriers that exist in the black community.
