Jean B. Weaver Dialysis Center
Did you know kidney disease death rates for both rural and urban Missourians remains relatively stable in recent years? However, the aging of the Missouri population and the rising prevalence of several conditions associated with kidney disease, which include obesity, diabetes and hypertension, may lead to higher kidney disease death rates in coming years. Interesting find concluded in a recent study is male rates are significantly higher than female rates for both rural and urban Missourians, mirroring the pattern seen for kidney disease death rates. Talk to your physician about how to become healthier to fight these statistics in your own life. SMDH has a Dialysis Unit to treat you if your disease becomes severe.
