You are at risk for Chronic Kidney Disease?
My doctor tests me regularly for any signs of kidney disease and has for some time since I was first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Now, since several of my senior friends have been diagnosed with kidney disease, I thought it might be a good idea to post this article for our subscribers to consider.
Diabetes is a major risk factor for kidney disease. Diabetes can be treated and can improve with healthy lifestyle choices. Because CKD can develop without symptoms, it is recommended that you ask your doctor to test you for CKD at least once a year.
Your heart and kidneys are two important organs in your body. They work together to keep you healthy. When one is affected, the other is too. In other words, your heart can affect the health of your kidneys, and your kidneys can affect the health of your heart.
If you are overweight or obese, you have a greater chance of developing diabetes or high blood pressure, which are the major causes of kidney disease and kidney failure.
