Did you know kidney disease can weaken your body's ability to fight off influenza ("the flu")? Here at Cleveland Kidney & Hypertension Consultants we value your health. Even in a healthy individual the flu virus can cause various complications - even send you to the hospital! It is imperative that patients who suffer from kidney disease keep themselves protected against influenza. We want to see all of our patients at their best. Be proactive and stay protected this flu season, get the flu shot wherever it is cheapest for you. Some options are your local pharmacy, your local big box score, or your primary care's office. It's not too late. Flu shots are recommended by the American Medical Association all the way through the end of March, but the sooner the better!
