CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE

About one in ten people worldwide is affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD) with over 2 million people globally receiving either dialysis treatment having benefited from a kidney transplant. It is estimated that 1.5 billion people will be living with kidney disease by 2050.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition in which the kidneys are damaged and cannot filter blood effectively. This can lead to a build-up of waste products and fluids in the body, which can cause a range of health problems.

CKD is typically a long-term condition that progresses slowly over months or years. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including hypertension, diabetes, and certain medications. It is often asymptomatic in its early stages, so it is important to get regular check-ups and screenings to detect it early on.

As CKD progresses, it can lead to more serious health problems, such as anemia, bone disease, nerve damage, and impaired immune function. In advanced stages, it may require treatment with medications, lifestyle changes, and in some cases, dialysis or a kidney transplant.

It is important to manage any underlying conditions that may contribute to CKD, such as controlling blood sugar levels in people with diabetes and managing blood pressure. Making healthy lifestyle choices, such as maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly, can also help slow the progression of CKD.

Kidney Health is Important

The kidneys are important organs in the body that perform a number of vital functions. They are located on either side of the spine, just below the ribcage, and are responsible for filtering waste products from the blood and eliminating them from the body through urine.

The kidneys also help to regulate the balance of electrolytes in the body, such as sodium, potassium, and calcium, and they produce hormones that help to regulate blood pressure and the production of red blood cells.

Maintaining good kidney health is important because the kidneys play a crucial role in maintaining overall health and well-being. When the kidneys are not functioning properly, waste products and excess fluids can build up in the body, leading to a range of health problems.

Kidney disease can also lead to other serious health problems, such as anemia, nerve damage, impaired immune function or worse.

To maintain good kidney health, it is important to make healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating a healthy diet, staying hydrated, exercising regularly, and managing any underlying conditions that may contribute to kidney disease, such as hypertension and diabetes. Getting regular check-ups and screenings can also help to detect kidney problems early on, allowing for timely treatment and management.
