World Kidney Day

World Kidney Day on the second Thursday in March sets out each year to create increased awareness about kidney care.

Our kidneys are vital to our everyday health, and many health issues contribute to Chronic Kidney Disease. Preventative measures help to reduce our risks and improve outcomes.

Several health conditions impact our kidneys. These are just a few:

  • Diabetes is one of the leading causes of kidney failure.
  • High blood pressure weakens blood vessels, including the ones in the kidneys.
  • High Cholesterol impacts how well the kidneys work and can also lead to high blood pressure and diabetes.
  • Anorexia Nervosa causes chronic kidney disease due to the lack of a healthy balance of water, electrolytes, and salt in the body.
  • Lupus causes your immune system to attack parts of your body. It sometimes impacts the kidneys, too.
  • Polycystic Kidney Disease causes cysts to grow inside the kidneys.

Early Chronic Kidney Disease usually has no symptoms, so early detection is essential. Educating medical professionals, identifying high-risk populations, and increasing donor programs are some of the key objectives of reducing Chronic Kidney Disease.

World Kidney Day History

In 2006, the International Federation of Kidney Foundations created World Kidney Day to raise awareness and increase educational opportunities regarding kidney diseases and prevention.
