The Division of Nephrology at LoCicero Medical Group provides specialty care services for patients with kidney diseases and high blood pressure.
The kidneys remove waste and extra fluid from the body. Over the course of many years, uncontrolled high blood pressure and high blood sugar cause damage to the kidneys. Left untreated, damaged kidneys cannot filter blood, causing a build-up of waste and a serious decline in overall health.
The Nephrology care team at LoCicero Medical Group works with you and your primary care provider to treat the underlying condition that is causing kidney damage. With specialized analysis of labs and diagnostic imaging, the Nephrology care team monitors the complexities of kidney damage to develop a treatment plan to slow the progression of the disease and reduce symptoms.
