About Our Research
Our team is filled with some of the world’s most respected Dr.s, pharmaceutical scientists, nutritionists, nurses, medical students, researchers, patients and families of those affected by CKD. With such a well-rounded team, every area of research is contemplated. The views from the doctors vary from those of the patients who have been on the receiving end of a CKD diagnosis and this combination leads to constructive conversations and ideas for new research. The research of kidney disease, its causes, and current treatment methods for CKD and for the causes of CKD are vital in the improvement of prevention and treatment.
What Are Our Goals?
Preventing kidney disease is our number one goal in combination with improving the current treatment modalities for those who have CKD. There are many underlying reasons a person can develop kidney disease, which can lead to kidney failure. Our goal is to do research for the prevention of end stage renal disease, intervention methods for slowing the progression of CKD and the improvement of treatment for the main causes of CKD. We are also doing research on improving the treatment for those who currently have kidney failure and are on dialysis and the transplant waiting list. Global Kidney Health aims to take the fear out of fighting kidney disease. Awareness and education is power and through this website we will highlight personal stories of those dealing with CKD. We will take the mystery out of the treatment modalities. Through open dialog we will provide updated resources to get quick answers to any questions one may have about prevention and treatment and new advancements in research.
