Urology with Yarnell: Late-Stage CKD
This is the second part of an entire series of Urology with Yarnell: Chronic Kidney Disease. Part 2 (this course) will address the late stages of Chronic Kidney Disease (Stages 3-5). Part 1 addressed treating late stage Chronic Kidney Disease (Stages 1-3). Part 3 will address dialysis and kidney transplants. Part 4 will address glomerulonephritides and vasculitis. Lastly, Part 5 will address Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD).
This course will talk about the real-world treatment of patients with late-stage and end-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD). Each and every one of the myths about the conventional dietary approach to people in this situation will be blown apart with full scientific support. What tests need to be monitored, how often, and why is reviewed thoroughly. Detailed advice on how to help people maintain or reverse their disease course is presented. Natural alternatives to conventional phosphate binders and adjunct therapies to erythropoietin are presented.
