Diabetes and high blood pressure can harm the kidneys and cause kidney disease. This can be very serious, as the kidneys are important for your body to work. An adult wellness visit and regular care from a doctor who knows you at Union Health Center is key to stopping kidney disease. If you have high blood pressure or diabetes, your doctor will catch it at your adult wellness visit and begin treating you right away to keep it under control. If you need to see a kidney specialist, there are doctors who specialize in the kidneys (nephrologists) at Union Health Center so you don’t have to go anywhere else.
