These resources are to help patients learn more about chronic kidney disease (CKD), including dialysis and transplantation, high blood pressure management, and goals of care planning. The OHSU Division of Nephrology and Hypertension does not endorse any resources and we have not reviewed all content. Some resources are not from the US and not all details may apply to your care. Please review any questions or concerns with your individual provider. For information about research in our division, please visit our trials webpage.

Please note, diet restrictions (such as potassium or phosphorus) do not apply to all patients, please review your kidney function and nutrition questions with your provider.
