Hello and Welcome!
My name is Dr. Gandotra and I am Nephrologist, otherwise known as a kidney specialist. I currently practice here in sunny Southern California and have my own private office clinic where I see patients.
Diabetes is a multi-systemic disease that affects many organs - most commonly the eyes, nerves and kidneys. Education and early intervention is of utmost importance in preventing diabetic kidney disease and dialysis. Gaytri Gandotra, MD, nephrologist specializing in kidney care at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center, discusses the possible long-term effects on the kidneys due to diabetes, how to properly manage diabetes to avoid damage to the kidneys, and ways to help keep your kidneys strong and functioning well.
