Health Matters: The Importance of Maintaining Kidney Health

Health Matters, March 3, 2022. Ranae Moran hosts this episode of Health Matters to talk about kidney health. One in seven American adults are estimated to have chronic kidney disease, and most may not know that their kidneys are in decline. To tell us more about issues affecting the kidneys and why we should pay attention to our kidney health, Moran is joined by Dr. Srijan Tandukar, transplant nephrologist with the John C. McDonald Regional Transplant Center at Willis Knighton in Shreveport, and Dr. Tom Siskron, urologist at Signature Urology with Willis Knighton Health System and Assistant Professor of Urology at LSU Health Shreveport.
