Do You Have Kidney Disease?

Kidneys play a key role in our overall health, helping to maintain a healthy blood volume and removing waste from our system. March is National Kidney Month — a great time to make sure your kidneys are doing their job effectively. Symptoms of kidney disease often develop over time and can easily be confused with other conditions. Providers at Associated Nephrology Consultants see patients here at the Apple Valley Medical Center and can evaluate you for a variety of conditions, including:

• kidney disease related to diabetes and high blood pressure
• glomerulonephritis
• polycystic kidney disease
• pre-dialysis and dialysis
• pre- and post-kidney transplantation
• severe high blood pressure
• kidney stones
• anemia related to kidney disease

New patients are being accepted. For more information about kidney diseases or to make an appointment, visit
