What You Need to Know About Calcium

Kidney Chronicles, a newsletter to help educate and inform patients, is the Network's patient newsletter, is a monthly, two-page, printable PDF that is available in English and Spanish. Please distribute this newsletter to patients, family members and care partners.
Use the newsletter as an opportunity to start a conversation about reviewing patients' lab work and understanding how the ERSD diet impacts health. You can also use this issue to review treatment modalities to ensure that patients are aware of all their treatment options and can articulate why they chose the treatment they are using now.
