Donald Trump Trolled For Claiming Kidney Has "Special Place In The Heart"

Trump is traveling to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda Maryland to visit First Lady Melania Trump who just had surgery for what aides called a

"AKF is encouraged to continue our fight against this deadly disease with our spectrum of programs supporting patients from prevention through transplant". Administration officials said many aspects of their plan would begin next year.

The president's address on kidney health comes as his administration faces intense scrutiny over the president's past friendship with indicted billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, and Labor Secretary Alex Acosta's handling of a past case involving Epstein.

"I am not a Trump supporter at all, but this is one of the few things where I completely agree with him", said Holly Mattix, a nephrologist at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago and president of the National Kidney Foundation, in an interview on Tuesday before she flew to to Washington for Trump's announcement.

Careful treatment - including control of diabetes and high blood pressure, the two main culprits - can help prevent further kidney deterioration. Early intervention leads patients who may still need dialysis to choose the best treatment option for their lifestyle and reduces expensive hospitalizations.

Despite Mr Trump's sometimes niche views on health, he was likely using an unusual turn of phrase to highlight the importance of the kidneys rather than actually claiming they are physically located in the heart.

Carmen Peralta, MD, executive director of the Kidney Health Research Collaborative, and CMO at kidney care provider Cricket Health, said it was "exciting to see CMS encourage innovation in a kidney care system that has simply failed patients for too long, while costs have skyrocketed".

The American Kidney Fund (AKF) commends the President and the Department of Health and Human Services for meaningfully addressing the epidemic of kidney disease-the fastest-growing noncommunicable disease in America. KCP has valued its continued work with the White House, HHS and CMS on efforts to improve the lives of those living with kidney disease.

"The way the system is set up, it's kind of pushing people towards dialysis", Seema Verma, head of the Centres for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in a phone interview. Boehler said an aunt died while on dialysis. Nichole Jefferson, 47, of Dallas, who is awaiting a second transplant to replace a transplanted kidney that is failing, said getting the treatment at home is much less taxing. Last year, there were more than 21,000 kidney transplants, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing.

It will consider the premarket approval of wearable or implantable artificial kidneys by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

At Wednesday's event, Azar spoke about how his father suffered from end-stage renal disease. Their members have worked to remove barriers to accessing home dialysis, which include establishing the Kidney Disease Education program through which clinicians can promote modality choices, aligning of home and in-center payment rates to eliminate disincentives for providing home dialysis, and promoting changes to coverage policies to support home hemodialysis.

Azar said he believes it's possible to double the number of kidneys available for transplant by 2030. Patients often have dialysis several days a week.

"We have gone through changes in iPhones and computers and the way we do defibrillators", Parikh said. The company is the largest provider of kidney care services in the US and has been a leader in clinical quality and innovation for 20 years.
