Welcome to the Show

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items, we will look at a new study that reports that a sedentary lifestyle is worse for you than obesity for long term health.

Then in this week’s special tip segment, I interview Dr. Jeff Giullian, a nephrologist who talks with me about kidney disease. What can we as nurses do to better recognize people at risk for this disorder and how can we manage those patients who already present with kidney disease? We’ll find out that that and more later in this episode after the news.

If you want to get back in touch with me, please drop me an email. You can send those e-mails in to I love to hear from you and I make sure I respond back to every email that comes in. Send me links to news items you’d like me to cover, interview suggestions with you or somebody you know.

Tip of the Week – Understanding Kidney Disease Risks and Treatment

Human-KidneysKidney disease may not grab the headlines, but it causes more deaths than breast and prostate cancer combined. In fact, one in three american adults are currently at risk for developing kidney disease, and modern lifestyles can take part of the blame. I got the chance to chat with Dr. Jeff Giullian about what to look for and new research into kidney disease. He’s a nephrologist and a partner at South Denver Nephrology Associates, in Denver Colorado.
