Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Action Plan Poster

I was at my physician’s office yesterday and noticed this great poster on the wall from the Renal Physicians Association (RPA).  I reached out to them and got a PDF of the poster – RPA Toolkit Action Poster FINAL.  (Note: It’s meant to be a poster on the wall not a graphic in a blog post so it’s here for you to go look at, but it’s not easy to read and digest here.  Use the link to get to the PDF.)

The key points are that it shows you stages of CKD based on GFR along with the action you should take.  It also highlights the risk factors for CKD and the possible complications.

  1. If you are interested in preventing further kidney damage, you might want to check out an iphone app called RENALTOUCH. It allows people with kidney disease who are either on dialysis or who may soon be on dialysis learn what they can do to improve their quality of life. There is information about 8 areas of kidney health to explore with a question and answer format to reinforce learning. You can get the app here:
