March 2013 Newsletter
March is … National Kidney Month
The goal of Nation Kidney Month is to focus the nation’s attention on kidney health – and for good reason. Kidney disease is a serious and increasingly common condition affecting the health of more than 31 million Americans.
Kidney diseases are most often caused by diabetes and high blood pressure, and can lead to a heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and death.
Anyone can develop kidney problems, however, there is a greater risk for those who:
* Have Diabetes
* Have High Blood Pressure
* Have a Family Member with Kidney Disease
* Are African American, Hispanic, Native American or Asian
* Are 60 Years of Age or Older
What are the Warning Signs?
Unfortunately 9 out of 10 people with early kidney disease don’t know it. More often than not there are no noticeable symptoms. The only way to know that your kidneys are working properly is to get tested. If caught early, kidney disease can be treated.
Don’t Be a Statistic!
Protect yourself and the people you love. . . National Kidney Month is the perfect time to take simple actions that can make a significant difference in your health and the prevention of kidney diseases such as, increased exercise, modifying your diet to include healthier choices and get screened.
