SAN MARCOS — March is National Kidney Month. Therefore, throughout the month of March, Home Dialysis Therapies, San Diego’s largest home dialysis program, is prompting all San Diego residents to become educated on advanced kidney disease. Kidney disease is a growing epidemic that affects more than 26 million people nationwide and thousands living in San Diego County, alone.
In San Diego, there are currently 2,500 people on regular dialysis treatments. Meanwhile, countless others remain undiagnosed and untreated because they do not know they are living with this disease. Home Dialysis Therapies of San Diego’s expert team of doctors, nurses and nutritionists will be visiting various locations throughout North County in March to help educate patients and their loved ones about advanced kidney disease.
A town hall meeting will be held at the San Marcos Community Hall at 3 Civic Center Drive on March 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.
Topics addressed during the meeting include discussions on advanced kidney disease and how to determine if you or someone you care about may be at risk; what to do if you think you may have advanced kidney disease; understanding available treatment options; and introduction to home dialysis and its benefits.
Call (858) 385-9213 to schedule a consultation.
