Questions to Ask Your Nephrologist

Nephrologists are kidney doctors who diagnose, treat, and manage chronic kidney disease. Before you decide on a treatment plan, you will want to understand the various chronic kidney disease treatment options. You should also discuss your disease prognosis, possible complications, and potential lifestyle changes with your nephrologist.

Getting the most out of the time you have with your healthcare team sometimes means asking the right questions.
