March 2024 Newsletter | Understanding Your Kidney Health

Written by Jessica F

Understanding Your Kidney Health 
March is National Kidney Month, making it a great time to take charge of your health by lowering your chances of developing kidney disease. 

Your kidneys filter your blood to remove waste and extra water to create urine. They also make vital hormones that produce red blood cells, promote bone health and regulate blood pressure. As such, the kidneys play a vital role in your body.

Kidney disease is a leading cause of death in the United States. Today, 15% of Americans are affected by kidney disease—and most won’t have symptoms unless their kidneys fail. There are numerous physical signs of kidney disease, but most people attribute them to other conditions. If you have one of these risk factors, you may be at risk for kidney disease:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Excess weight
  • Family history of kidney disease

Your kidneys work hard for you, so taking good care of them is essential. Contact your doctor for more information about kidney health and warning signs of kidney disease.
