The class reviews ways to slow down the progression of Chronic Kidney Disease, including medication and diet. You will also be introduced to all the treatment options for Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease including transplant, home dialysis and in-center dialysis. The class is two hours long, meets one time, and is available to patients and their significant others.  The class is free and you do not have to be a Henry Ford patient to attend.
