Your amaaaaaaaaazing kidneys!

Ask not what your kidneys can do for you, but what you can do for your kidneys? It’s World Kidney Day and that means it’s time to learn a little more about what your kidneys do and why they’re so important!
We heart Kidneys!
We heart Kidneys!
I’m sure we all know that your kidneys produce urine, but what else do they do?
Those are all important things! Imagine if you had Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and had to have dialysis several times a week to filter your blood. That doesn’t sound like much fun.
If you detect it early, though, kidney disease is treatable. If you’re at risk, your doctor can order a simple test to determine if you need treatment.
How can you reduce your risk of developing kidney disease? Just live an active, healthy lifestyle, and get your kidney function checked if you're at risk.
The World Kidney Day site is a great site to find out more about your amazing kidneys!
