Abstract

We sought to identify practice patterns of pediatric nephrologists for tobacco counseling, because of a high incidence of secondhand smoke exposure and tobacco use in adolescents with chronic kidney disease. Counseling was minimal for several reasons, thus increasing the risk for heart disease inherent in children with chronic kidney disease.
