Patients who require dialysis have experienced a loss of kidney function,
also known as end stage renal failure. The leading cause of renal failure
is diabetes and hypertension. A 2005 study showed that Tulare County had
the highest prevalence of diabetes in the state, with over 10 percent
of Tulare County residents testing positive for some type of diabetes.
The need for expanded dialysis services in Tulare County is great, and
Sierra View's Dialysis Center is here to help meet that need.
