What Can We Learn From The Flu Pandemic of 1918

The Influenza Pandemic of 1918 can teach us many lessons. Worldwide, it took over 2 years to fully resolve. It had a beginning, a 2nd wave, and an end. In the United States, cities that took sustained action, flattened the curve. The ill and their families were quarantined, public events and public transportation were closed. Those with chronic illness fared worse. Those that lived communally, such as soldiers during wartime, despite youth, were hard hit. Poor people and those that were malnourished were at high risk. And when it was over, people quickly forgot. Although we value our independence, a pandemic teaches us that we are all connected. Much more so now, due to widespread travel, then in 1918. We end this pandemic now by being thoughtful and prudent. That’s how we flatten the curve. Wash your hands, wear your cloth face covering, and stay home if you are sick. If you have a chronic illness, particularly obesity and diabetes, you are at highest risk of complications and must be very cautious, while simultaneously seeking to optimize your health through healthful living choices. This is how we take care of ourselves. And each other. #covid19 #responsibility #community #humanity #patience #diabetes #obesity #history #medicineandmedia The Kidney and Hypertension Group

Broward Hospital District Exploring Expanding Kidney and Liver Transplant Services

In what would be a first-of-its-kind collaboration, the North Broward and South Broward Hospital Districts have agreed to explore the possibility of cooperating on organ transplant services. The potential partnership would involve the existing liver transplant program at North Broward’s Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale and the kidney transplant program at South Broward’s Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood.
Gino Santorio and Aurelio M. Fernandez, leaders of Broward Health and Memorial Healthcare System respectively, recently signed an exploratory cooperation letter of intent to formally begin the due diligence process. The doctors of @kidneygroup are excited to be a part of this process. We believe it will bring more opportunities for transplant to the many patients in Broward county currently waiting.

Dr. Gabriel Valle On Protein Intake and Your Kidneys

PROTEIN AND CKD There seems to be a period of susceptibility that determines the effect of protein intake on the kidney. In this regard, both the etiology of the pre-existing (or underlying) kidney disorder as well as its chronicity and severity are of paramount importance. When present, some comorbid conditions have a strong modulating effect on the eventual course and outcome of kidney disease. Additionally, specific parameters of disease activity have a stronger predictive value than others. Age and ethnicity also have an important effect on the evolution and trajectory of CKD. In this context, the sound management of the patient with CKD encompasses a wholistic and dynamic approach which must start with a clear understanding of the disease process, defining milestones and management goals, patient engagement and accountability, integrated, longitudinal care, monitoring parameters of activity, risk stratification, multidisciplinary collaboration and adjusting therapeutic interventions and lifestyle changes to specific individual needs (more to follow). Our goal is to optimize quality of life and patient satisfaction while providing value and outcome driven care.
