Today is World Kidney Day!
Go here to learn all about your kidneys, early detection of kidney disease, and how to get checked. They play such an important role in your overall health. As someone who lives with kidney disease every single day, I know how important it is!
"The frequency of chronic kidney disease (CKD) continues to increase worldwide as does the prevalence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The most common, but not only, causes of CKD are hypertension and diabetes. There are currently over 240 million people with diabetes worldwide. This figure is projected to rise to 380 million by 2025, largely due to population growth, aging, urbanization, unhealthy eating habits, increased body fat and a sedentary lifestyle." - http://www.worldkidneyday.org
