Fatigue

Fatigue can signal many things. Here are some tips to help you decipher why you're wiped out and to regain your energy.

Fibromuscular dysplasia

Fibromuscular dysplasia is a rare, but treatable, condition in which the arteries to your kidneys, brain or abdomen narrow, reducing blood flow to your organs.

High blood pressure (hypertension)

Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to various life-threatening conditions. But it's easily detected — and you can work with your doctor to control it.

Kidney biopsy

A kidney biopsy — removing a small piece of kidney tissue for viewing under a microscope — helps with diagnosis and treatment of kidney problems.

Kidney transplant

A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure done to treat kidney failure.

Palliative care

If you or a loved one has a serious illness, palliative care might be an option. Understand the benefits of palliative care.

Peritoneal dialysis

During peritoneal dialysis, a fluid flows into your abdominal cavity where it draws wastes from blood vessels in your abdominal wall. The fluid is then withdrawn and discarded.

Shortness of breath

Shortness of breath can be frightening. Most of the time, a heart or lung condition is the cause.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of structures in your body.

Urinalysis

Urinalysis can be used to assess your overall health, detect a wide range of disorders, or monitor a medical condition or treatment.
