Flushing, NY, March 18, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Every year March is known for its "Madness," unfortunately too many people are watching basketball to shift their awareness towards something that affects 26 million American adults while millions of others are at increased risk. So what is Chronic Kidney Disease? According to Worldkidneyday.org, "Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a progressive loss in kidney function over a period of months or years. Each of your kidneys has about a million tiny filters, called nephrons. If nephrons are damaged, they stop working. For a while, healthy nephrons can take on the extra work. But if the damage continues, more and more nephrons shut down. After a certain point, the nephrons that are left cannot filter your blood well enough to keep you healthy."
There are no signs or symptoms to show the early stages of (CKD).
Unfortunately Chronic Kidney Disease is not known to go away once infected
On the bright side, CKD is something that can be treated. Keep in mind that the sooner you act on receiving treatment, the more effective it will be.
Checking for Kidney Disease is as simple as taking a blood and urine test.
Without proper treatment kidney disease can progress to kidney failure.
