Healthy Diet and your Kidneys

KEEPING A HEALTHY DIET: Some patients, particularly those with high potassium and/or those who are diabetic, are not recommended to consume avocados and sweet potatoes. Not certain? You may want to avoid these foods entirely. Be sure to check with your doctor for detailed suggestions. If you need professional advice or assistance, contact us for a consultation.

Did You Know… Nephrons

DID YOU KNOW… Each of your kidneys is made up of about a million filtering units called nephrons. Each nephron includes a filter, called the glomerulus, and a tubule. The nephrons work through a two-step process: the glomerulus filters your blood, and the tubule returns needed substances to your blood and removes wastes.
