Health expert discusses prevention and early detection of kidney disease

The Kidney Foundation of Canada, BC & Yukon Branch exists to help prevent kidney disease or delay the onset. Although it is quite well recognised that poorly controlled diabetes can lead to kidney problems, it is less well known that uncontrolled high blood pressure is also a strong risk factor. The diseases in turn damage the kidneys.

According to several Indian population-based studies, the number of Indians suffering from chronic kidney ailments has doubled in the past 15 years, and at present 17 in every hundred citizens suffer from some form of kidney disease.

Baxter has a long legacy of supporting the kidney disease community, and has been a sponsor of World Kidney Day for many years. One in three American adults is at risk for developing the disease in their lifetimes. Obesity is directly linked to diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension) and metabolic syndrome. This year's campaign promotes "education on the harmful consequences of obesity and its association with kidney disease, advocating a healthy lifestyle and healthcare strategy recommendations that tackle the magnitude of the burden of obesity and kidney disease".

The report, titled "Obesity and Chronic Kidney Disease: the Hidden Impact", shows nearly two million Australian adults have at least one clinical sign of chronic kidney disease yet 90 per cent don't know it. They play the powerful roles of filtering everything in your system, keeping your body clear of waste and toxins, balancing your internal fluids, releasing hormones that regulate blood pressure, and controlling the production of red blood cells, among other things.

David Price Tweets He's Returning To Fort Myers, Says Nothing
There's trouble in Red Sox camp. "Any time you have someone like (Price), you're going to be cautious", Dave Dombrowski said . Price posted a 17-9 mark with a 3.99 ERA last season and finished fourth in the American League with 228 strikeouts.

Another key fact about chronic kidney disease, which can cause confusion, is that there are five different stages. "The human body is usually able to cope with a significant reduction in kidney function, and therefore, problems aren't always spotted early on".

Any type of kidney disease can reduce the efficiency of this filtration process. As an organisation, Kidney Research UK is committed to working with medical professionals across the UK to help them identify "at risk" patients and ensure they have the support and guidance they need to work towards early diagnosis in as many cases as possible. "Integrate healthy lifestyle choices into your daily activities, including proper nutrition and exercise".

"As a 67-year-old organization, we're trying to refresh our approach to reach a younger demographic which doesn't realize how unsafe kidney disease can be", added Longino.
