It’s a silent disease that can be symptomless until it reaches an advanced stage. In this interview we discuss one of the most important interventions to slow chronic kidney disease progression.

Allergic Rhinitis miniseries, Part 1: We have a large burden of allergic rhinitis in Australia, which can significantly affect quality of life. Allergic disease can affect the lungs, ears, nose and throat, it can affect people’s workplace productivity, absenteeism and asthma control. Patients can sometimes trivialise this disease and there is a high rate of self-treatment, so how can we help our patients to get the right treatment?
Allergic Rhinitis miniseries, Part 2: Allergic rhinitis is not something which should simply just be managed over the counter in the pharmacy. Making the correct diagnosis is essential .
