GENERAL AWARENESS ABOUT KIDNEY DISEASE…!!!

kidney disease

Kidneys are a pair of beans shaped organs that lie on either side of the spine in the lower middle of the back.The kidneys process about 200 liters of blood every day and produce about two liters of urine.The waste products are generated from normal metabolic processes including the breakdown of active tissues, ingested foods, and other substances. The kidneys allow consumption of a variety of foods, drugs, vitamins and supplements, additives, and excess fluids without worry that toxic by­ products will build up to harmful levels. The kidney also plays a major role in regulating levels Earlier recognition of chronic kidney disease (CKD) could slow progression, prevent complications, and reduce cardiovascular ­related outcomes

CAUSES OF COMMON KIDNEY DISEASES

Kidney disease is most often caused by other conditions that put a strain on the kidneys. High blood pressure (hypertension) and diabetes are the most common causes of kidney disease.

Diabetes is the number one cause of kidney disease, responsible for approximately 44 percent of all kidney failure cases1. High blood pressure (also called hypertension) is the second leading cause, accountable for about 28 percent 1. Glomerulonephritis, a general term for many types of kidney inflammation, as well as genetic diseases such as polycystic kidney disease (PKD),autoimmune diseases, birth defects and other problems can also cause kidney disease.Can I catch kidney disease from someone who has it? of various minerals such as calcium, sodium, and potassium in the blood.No. Kidney disease is not contagious. Most kidney disease is caused by diabetes or high blood pressure, conditions that can run in families.I have a family member with polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Should I be tested?According to the PKD Foundation®, polycystic kidney disease (PKD) does not skip generations like other genetic diseases. If you have a family member with PKD, ask your doctor about getting tested. The first test used for PKD is an ultrasound to look at the kidneys and see if there are cysts. Learning more about PKD may help you to take better care of your kidney health. The PKD Foundation has more information that can help you

SYMPTOMS OF KIDNEY DISEASES:

­Need to urinate frequently, especially at night (nocturnal);Swelling of the legs and puffiness around the eyes (fluid retention);Fatigue and weakness (from anemia or accumulation of waste products in the body);Loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting;Itching, easy bruising, and pale skin (from anemia);Shortness of breath from fluid accumulation in the lungs;Headaches, numbness in the feet or hands (peripheral neuropathy), disturbed sleep, altered mental status (encephalopathy from the accumulation of waste products or uremic poisons), and restless legs syndrome;Bleeding (due to poor blood clotting);Inability to excrete potassium and rising potassium levels in the serum (hyperkalemia) is associated with fatal heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias) including ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation.Generalized weakness may be due to anemia.Bone pain and fractures; and Loss of appetite, lethargy, and fatigue Chest pain due to pericarditis (inflammation around the heart);Decreased sexual interest and erectile dysfunctions with diet charts, exercise schedules and guide them how to modify their lifestyle so that betterSYMPTOMS OF KIDNEY FAILUREFatigue, nausea and fluid retention—usually don’t occur until the late stages of kidney disease because the kidney can still adequately filter the blood even after extensive damage.Usually the first sign that the kidneys’ filtration system is damaged is an excess amount of protein in the urine, known as microalbuminuria. This is not just an early sign of kidney disease, but a well established risk factor for cardiovascular disease, such as heart attack and stroke.—one using urine and the other blood—must be performed annually for early detection. The urine sample is used to screen for microalbuminuria. The standard urine dipstick used in doctors’ offices does not measure this—a special machine is required instead.The blood sample is used to measure the level of creatinine, a substance normally present in the blood, which increases if your kidneys are not functioning properly. The blood sample results are then plugged into a formula that estimates your kidneys’ filtering capacity. The most commonly used formula is called the MDRD equation. One cannot overemphasize how important it is to measure your blood creatinine and to use the MDRD equation to estimate total kidney filtering. The creatinine value alone can be misleading, as it must be interpreted within the context of age and gender. Patients often have more advanced kidney disease than their blood creatinine value alone suggests.

HOW TO PREVENT AND CONTROL KIDNEY DISEASETight control of blood glucose levels (A1C less than 7 percent) Tight control of blood pressure: aim for lower than 130/80 Control of lipids: LDL (“bad”) cholesterol should be less than 100 mg/dl, HDL (“good”) cholesterol should be above 50 mg/dl and triglycerides should be less than 150 mg/dl Blood pressure­lowering drugs, such as ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs),are effective in protecting the kidney from damage if you have signs of diabetic kidney disease the Earlier You Know, the BetterROLE OF
