Ask the Doctor
Questions about kidney disease? Risk factors? Signs and symptoms? Are you concerned about yourself, a friend or family member? Ask Dr. Spry.
Come to the NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo on January 11-12 at the DC Convention Center. There are hundreds of exhibits, demonstrations, plenty of giveaways and fun for the entire family.
Be sure to stop by the Amgen/NKF Booth #1901 and find out if you're at risk for kidney disease. High blood pressure and diabetes are the two leading causes of kidney disease.
* May take longer during peak hours; including time spent in line waiting to begin the screening
If you are at risk, you'll be encouraged to follow up with your doctor* or contact NKF for more information.
* If you do not have a primary care provider (PCP), you will be provided with a listing of free and sliding-scale clinics.
"The risk assessment I received made a big difference to my health and well-being. During the screening, one of the health professionals noticed that I was taking a medication that was causing me harm. Thanks to the NBC4 Expo, I'm no longer taking that medication and am in touch with my cardiologist."
