  • World Kidney Day

The World Kidney Day, which is commemorated on the second Thursday of March, seeks to highlight the kidney problems related to common health disorders like diabetes and high blood pressure, which may lead to the chronic kidney diseases. The #850Strong walk will be at Leslie Porter Park at 10 a.m. Approximately 1 in 5 adults with high blood pressure may have chronic kidney disease, again making it necessary for all hypertensive persons to be screened for kidney disease.

Amira urged government to strengthen primary health care (PHC) and make it available to the grassroots.She pleaded: "We are begging government on behalf of the patients and the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) to please consider kidney diseases".

As part of the World Kidney Day 2019 celebrations, the Department of Studies in Food Science and Nutrition, Manasagangothri, University of Mysore and the Mysore chapter of Indian Dietetic Association are joinlty organising a one day symposium on "Medical and nutrition interface in pulmonary and renal diseases" at the department. "Keeping in shape helps to decrease blood pressure and therefore, chronic kidney diseases".

People with diabetes and high blood pressure have the highest risk for kidney disease, but others are at increased risk as well: anyone with a family history of the disease, people who are obese, people who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups, and those over age 60. She is also one of the editors of the China Kidney Disease Network (CK-NET) 2015 Annual Data Report, which was published by Kidney International, the official journal of the International Society of Nephrology, last month.

The foundation wants people to talk to their doctor and get their kidney health checked out.

Kidneys serve a vital role by filtering waste and excess fluid from the blood and maintaining a healthy balance of water, salts, and minerals.

However, Army barricades blocked marchers. "Thankfully we had the people in this town who were very supportive of the families". What followed was a 12-year-long investigation involving more than 900 witnesses and hundreds of hours of evidence.


Another risk factor for kidney disease is prolonged use of drugs that damage the kidneys, like Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), certain antibiotics, even some drugs used to treat hypertension.

The Principal of the Post Basic School of Nursing, Mrs Titi Segun-Agboola, explained that the body uses kidney organ to cleanse the blood while likening it to the "environmental sanitation of the organ of the body".

He said that many problems of the kidney are diagnosed through the urine, warning that excessive urine is a sign of trouble and that when the filters in the kidneys are damaged, protein leaks into the urine. This can make it hard to get a good night's sleep at night.

Kidney disease can be detected by the doctor after performing certain tests to check the functionality of the organ. Proper control of calcium, phosphorus, intact parathyroid hormone and 25 hydroxyvitamin D levels in patients with CKD is very crucial to prevent and delay the progression of CKD.

As kidney disease usually does not go away with medications or time and has the tendency of worsening over time, it is better to take small steps at the right time. "We know that through education and through early detection we can have an impact".
