Hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, gout and weight management

Hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, gout and weight management

 

Diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure) are important causes of kidney problems. Overweight and obesity are also linked. In addition, patients with kidney problems due to other causes are more susceptible to develop metabolic problems like type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, gout and hypertension.

 

A great part of the management of kidney dysfunction centers in controlling these conditions.

 

Diet, exercise, habit modifications and loss of weight are central in the management of these conditions and kidney problems, and the prevention of disease occurrence or progression.

 

 

Please book an appointment with Dr Francisco, our kidney doctor, if you would like to have a checkup (screening) for these and other metabolic problems
