World Kidney Day

Kidney2017Held every year on the second Thursday in March, World Kidney Day is an awareness day that brings global attention to the importance of kidney health.

The day aims to highlight the risk factors that can lead to Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).In addition, one of the primary goals of the World Kidney Day is to educate the public about the management of CKD and to encourage people to consider kidney donation and transplants as an effective way to help those with kidney failure. The observance was established in 2006 as a joint initiative of the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF).

The Body's FilterResponsible for removing waste products from the human body by filtering the blood, regulating blood pressure, and producing critical life-sustaining hormones, kidneys are two bean-shaped organs located under a person's rib, one on each side.By helping the body excrete waste and excess fluid through urine, kidneys help optimize the composition of blood, keep bones strong, and help the body make red blood cells. Any breakdown in the function of the kidneys can lead to poor health at a minimum, and can be fatal at the extreme.

Maintaining Kidney HealthBecause of this, reducing the risk of kidney disease and failure is essential. Medical professionals suggest that healthy eating, keeping one's weight in check, and keeping active are simple ways for people to ward off kidney disease. In addition, it is recommended that people at risk for kidney disease should try to avoid overusing over-the-counter and prescription drugs, as well as regularly screening their blood sugar levels and blood pressure.Kidney20

Managing Kidney DiseaseOne of the primary purposes of World Kidney Day is to advocate best practices in detecting and effectively managing kidney diseases and kidney failure. If detected early enough, kidney disease can be easily treated with medication and diet. Those with chronic high blood pressure, diabetes, and other conditions that can affect kidney function are therefore encouraged to get routine checks for kidney function.
