Rare disease spotlight: Diagnosis, treatment and management of aHUS
aHUS (atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome) is a rare disease that causes too many blood clots to form in your blood vessels.

aHUS (atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome) is a rare disease that causes too many blood clots to form in your blood vessels. Because these blood clots block regular blood flow to your kidneys, your kidneys are not able to get rid of waste in your body as well as they should. Over time, your kidneys become damaged, which can lead to kidney failure. On Rare Disease Day 2022, we are bringing together nephrologist, Bradley Dixon, MD, FASN, and patient advocate, Jeff Schmidt, for a discussion on aHUS. Join the conversation to:

  • Learn more about aHUS, how it is diagnosed, and treatment options
  • Meet an inspiring patient advocate and hear his journey as a parent of a child with aHUS
  • Find out what to ask your health care team
