>>A doctor speaks with a patient in his office.>>What are the symptoms of kidney disease?>>Chronic kidney disease is what we
sometimes call the silent disease.>>Uhmm-hmm.>>And what that means is, is
that most people have no symptoms. They don’t feel any way until
the disease is pretty advanced. For that reason, we need to do routine
testing in people at risk to identify patients with kidney disease because that
allows us to identify the patients and to begin treating early
in the course of disease.
