If you’ve experienced recurrent kidney stones or are at risk for kidney disease from high blood pressure or diabetes, get expert advice from Sutter Health network care providers. Physicians, registered dietitians, nurses and clinical social workers, many of whom specialize in diabetes and heart health, can provide a wealth of scientifically founded information to help you avoid or manage kidney stressors.
Our educators (including 26 dedicated diabetes instructors) offer classes and support groups across our Northern California network, providing wisdom and encouragement on diet, exercise, smoking cessation, medications, pregnancy-related kidney care, home dialysis modalities and more.
We also offer diabetes- and heart-focused Shared Medical Appointments, one- to three-hour meetings where you receive face-to-face healthcare in a relaxed group setting—giving you more time with your doctor as well as information and support from others who share your diagnosis or concerns.
If you already have end-stage kidney disease, our staff will be at your side, helping you understand your two treatment options: dialysis or kidney transplant.
