Dr Lapinsky Appearance on WTOC for Kidney Month

Joseph Lapinsky, D.O., a nephrologist at SouthCoast Health, recently appeared on WTOC's Morning Break to mark National Kidney Month. In his segment, Dr. Lapinsky emphasized the importance of monitoring kidney health, likening kidney disease to a silent threat similar to high blood pressure. He highlighted how kidney issues often go unnoticed until symptoms reach a critical stage, emphasizing the need for proactive care.

Among Dr. Lapinsky's recommendations was the necessity of documenting all medications, including over-the-counter drugs, and their duration of use. He warned of potential kidney complications from prolonged high-dose medication intake.
