Kidney Doctor Offers Advice On Kidney Disease Risks

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - In just four days, hundreds of people will lace 'em up for the 2014 Salisbury Kidney Walk.

Chronic kidney disease involves the gradual loss of kidney function over a period of time. Dr. Adam Weinstein, a nephrologist at the Easton Kidney Health Center of Maryland says that most patients can't even tell they're living with the disease until they go through screening tests.

"The biggest thing is to know the risk factor for kidney disease are diabetes and hypertension and making sure you have routine follow-ups with your primary doctor so they can do what is called screenings or doing certain test that would check your for kidney disease," said Dr. Weinstein.

47 ABC Meteorologist Daniel Johnson will be there to emcee the event! The walk will be held at Winterplace Park this Saturday, May 4th.

Check-in starts at 9AM and the race starts at 10AM. For more information, call 410-726-8732.
