Chronic Kidney Disease Treatment in Dubai

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is when there are signs of kidney damage lasting for at least 3 months.  This can be diagnosed by a simple blood or urine test.  Those at risk need to be tested as they may not necessarily have symptoms, especially in early stages.  Hypertension and diabetes are common diseases and are the two major causes of CKD.  Kidney damage can progress with time and eventually lead to dialysis if not followed and managed appropriately.

The Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Clinic at CMC Dubai uses a multidisciplinary approach to create an individualized treatment plan to manage the disease and prevent progression. This will include a full evaluation and assessment of the underlying kidney disease, confirm the use of appropriate medications to protect the kidneys and avoidance of agents that can damage them. We work closely with cardiology, endocrinology, and surgery departments as well as our radiology and laboratory physicians to make sure that a full evaluation is performed, and a personalized treatment plan is created. We will make sure that underlying diseases such as diabetes and hypertension are managed and provide valuable educational material and support for lifestyle modifications.
