World Kidney Day is a day to raise awareness of kidney disease and highlight the importance of our kidneys to our overall health.
Today, World Kidney Day puts the accent on the important, yet rarely acknowledged, role that Obesity plays in the development and progression of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
Why Should YOU Care?
The good news is that obesity, as well as CKD, is largely preventable. Education and awareness of the risks of obesity and a healthy lifestyle, including proper nutrition and exercise, can dramatically help in preventing obesity and kidney disease.
This year World Kidney Day promotes education about the harmful consequences of obesity and its association with kidney disease, advocating healthy lifestyle and health policy measures that make preventive behaviors an affordable option.
