Fresenius Kidney Care, the dialysis division of Fresenius Medical Care North America and the nation’s leading network of dialysis facilities, invites the community to attend an open house celebration on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at its new center in Sutton. In Massachusetts, there are nearly 11,750 patients on dialysis.
Fresenius Kidney Care Oxford Dialysis Center will have capacity to treat up to 72 patients a week. Patients, healthcare providers, and members of the community will be able to tour the center and learn about chronic kidney disease. Clinicians will also provide screenings and risk assessments and offer blood pressure checks at the event.
About 1 in 7 adults in the U.S. have chronic kidney disease, with many not detecting the condition until they have lost more than 96 percent of their kidney function. Symptoms and warning signs for late-stage kidney disease include changes in urination, fatigue, swelling in hands or feet, and pain in the small of the back. Physicians recommend that people who are at risk for CKD are screened at least once a year. More than 600,000 Americans live with kidney failure, which requires either a transplant or dialysis to remove waste from the blood, maintain safe levels of potassium and sodium, and control blood pressure.
