Experiencing Kidney Problems? – You Are Not Alone!

Kidney Problems ?

Kidney problems are quite common, but most kidney related problems can and should be prevented through self-education and the practical application of the acquired knowledge!

Did you know that…

…the treatment of chronic kidney disease (CKD) alone, is a huge cost driver for patients, their families and taxpayers, particularly in developed countries?

According to a report published by NHS Kidney Care, the treatment of kidney disease in England exceeds the costs for the treatment of breast, lung, colon and skin cancer combined! In Australia, the costs of treating current and new cases of end stage kidney disease (ESKD) are estimated at $12 billion up to the year 2020, and dialysis treatment per patient and per year varies between 50,000 and 80,000 AUD. In the US alone, the costs for the treatment of ESKD rose to $34.3 billion already by 2011, accounting for 6.3% of the total Medicare budget! These figures should be alarming to anyone but they don’t have to stay this way!!

If you are suffering from (or believe you may be suffering from) kidney related problems,  then, the resources, links and information you will find on this website should prove quite useful, as they include the following:

  • First of all, you may want to learn about some of the most common causes of kidney problems (link) in order to get an idea of what could be the cause of your current complaints.

  • Secondly, you may also find it helpful to learn how to easily recognize potential symptoms of kidney disease (link). Needless to say, if you haven’t done so already, you should also consult with a health care professional to try to get a clear diagnosis for your condition.

  • Thirdly, if you have already been to a physician and have been diagnosed with kidney disease, then you may be interested in learning a bit about what kinds of foods are considered to be helpful/harmful in a healthy kidney diet (link).

  • Fourthly, you may also be looking for some simple & easy (yet also effective and practical) techniques that can help you improve kidney function in a natural manner (link).

We all have the power and opportunity to make truly important and life changing decisions in each day of our lives. The question is: Are we ready to become informed and take the required action when the time comes?

Taking care of one’s health should not be taken lightly. If you have been neglecting your health and/or diet, and are now suffering from kidney related problems, then today could be the day when you start making a conscious change for the better.
