9 MARCH IS WORLD KIDNEY DAY
The overall objective is to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining
a healthy lifestyle to keep the kidneys healthy, and what can be done to
protect kidneys before disease strikes as well as helping those who already
have kidney disease.
The biggest risk to your kidneys is from uncontrolled diabetes or high blood
pressure, particularly if you are severely overweight or obese. An estimated
one in four adults (one in five children) in the UK are severely overweight
and could therefore face the risk of developing kidney disease.
