Krista Welschmeyer's Story

Swollen ankles, that is how it all started. Then the swelling moved up my legs and made me miserable! Doctors did blood work only, and what turned into an eight-month ordeal could have been avoid by a simple urine test. Never in a million years would I have thought the problem was my kidneys.  People really do take them for granted, and now I am always telling my friends and family to ask for a kidney screening. Early detection can be the key factor with kidney disease. Be your own advocate!
