Indian Diaspora in Bahrain conducted Super Specialty Medical Camp

World Kidney Day is a global health awareness campaign focusing on the importance of the kidneys and reducing the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems worldwide. World Kidney Day is observed annually on the 2nd Thursday in March.

There are simple things that we can do to improve kidney health. Start with staying hydrated. Regular and consistent water intake improves kidney functions. It helps clear sodium and toxins from the kidney and lowers the risk of chronic kidney diseases. Be mindful about the quantity of the water intake as both under and over hydration can deteriorate kidney health. It is advisable to drink as per your health requirements and lifestyle And limit your  salt intake and do away with processed foods as even one serving can contain a lot of refined salt and sodium that can put pressure on the kidney to process and flush it out of the body.

A kidney-friendly diet should be low in sodium, cholesterol, and fat. It should rather focus on naturally grown fruits, vegetables, along with low-fat dairy and lean meats. Also, be mindful of protein intake. Having too much protein may cause waste to build in the blood, and the kidneys then have to work harder to remove it

World Kidney Day focuses on preventive interventions to prevent the onset and progression of kidney diseases. Diabetes and high blood pressure are key risk factors for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

Most people with early kidney disease do not have symptoms. That is why it is important to be tested.
