Weight management is especially important for people with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Unfortunately, Medicare currently limits which medical professionals can provide services that help patients address and manage their weight.
The Treat and Reduce Obesity Act currently in Congress would change that, and help patients get coverage for consultations with dietitians, physician assistants, and others who can help with their kidney care. Tell your federal lawmakers to back this bill now and help address a significant risk factor in CKD and other causes of kidney failure.
