Answer

Patients need to understand that nephrogenic systemic fibrosis in not a life-threatening disease and that it lacks effective treatment. Patients should also be warned about the increased risk of falls and subsequent fractures. Patients can be directed to the NFD Registry Web page for updated information (NFD/NSF Registry).
