Most people don’t know that along with your heart, lungs and brain, your kidneys help keep you alive!
Are you curious?
If you are over 60 years old OR if you have:
Then, yes, you are at risk of having kidney issues - one out of three Americans are!
So if you live with three people, work with three people, or go to school with three people, the odds are one of you is at risk for kidney disease! Don’t let it be you!
Be good to your kidneys – keep moving- but no, not out of state!
Move your body! Walk, bike, hike, run, play basketball, dance, ice skate, exercise - whatever you like! Thirty minutes a day can lower your blood pressure and your blood sugar.
Choose more foods that come from nature rather than from the factory!
Apples, peppers, lettuce, cucumbers, potatoes, and strawberries are examples of winners!
Limit processed foods. You know – foods that come in bags, boxes and cans, and have ingredients we can’t pronounce, or from fast food restaurants (sorry)! Many have been linked to kidney disease and even cancer.
Did you know some popular pain killers can hurt your kidneys?!
Be careful to read the bottle and don’t take more than the limit! If you already have kidney disease, don’t take any without consulting your nephrologist (specialists in kidney failure and high blood pressure like us)!
Are your kidneys working well?
Two simple tests can tell you: ACR and GFR. Your primary care doctor can explain to you how these tests can tell you if you have kidney disease. He/she may want you to get tested – just ask!
