The Link Between Heart Disease and Chronic Kidney Disease

Most people know what heart disease and chronic kidney disease are, but they may not know how the two are linked. Chronic kidney disease by itself and excessive protein in the urine are also risk factors for heart disease, but these factors are part of a cycle. Speak to your primary care doctor to determine your risk for one or both conditions.
