Chronic pain is an unfortunate reality for many people and is even more common for those who have kidney disease. And to make matters more complicated, common pain relieving medicines such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen are known to cause kidney disease and are therefore not recommended for this group. This can leave many people with kidney disease feeling frustrated, and unsure of how to cope.

This webinar will discuss why people with kidney disease may feel more pain than others and the common sources of pain including gout, frequent needle sticking, bone disease, and other complications. We’ll also discuss pain management strategies and medicines people with kidney disease can safely use to reduce pain.
