FIELDS OF ACTIVITY
Concerns patients who have a risk of developing a kidney disease:
Metabolic diseases (kidney stones)
Concerns patients who have a risk of worsening a pre-existing kidney disease, developing chronic kidney failure
Urinary tract infections
Patients taking nephrotoxic drugs (Lithium)
The goal is, through a personalized patient care, to slowdown the evolution towards kidney failure and then towards terminal kidney failure. Prevention therefore plays an important role in public health and in reducing health costs.
It concerns patients with symptoms of kidney disease, who therefore present the risk of developing kidney failure over time.
The main symptoms are as follows:
Calcium / Phosphorus
Preparation for replacement therapies
It concerns patients who have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD), which requires replacement therapy such as dialysis (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis) or kidney transplantation. The emphasis is on correct and explicit information (in line with the recommendations of EKPF: European Kidney Patients’ Federation) to both the patient and his family. This allows choosing the appropriate replacement therapy taking into account the social context of the patient.
They regard patients who follow a replacement therapy (such as peritoneal dialysis) or transplant patients.
