World Kidney Day: World Kidney Day is a global health event observed on March 9 with an aim to bring patients suffering from kidney disease and highlight awareness about kidney health and how it can affect life. This health campaign also educates the populace about their role in maintaining overall health and well-being. The kidneys are the vital organs in the system that performs several bodily processes and without a healthy one, even the simplest task can become dreadful.

Antioxidant-rich foods can help neutralise free radicals and protect the body. Many anti-oxidant foods are included in the kidney diet and are excellent choices for people on dialysis or with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Working with a kidney dietitian and eating antioxidant-rich foods as part of your kidney diet are important for people with kidney disease because they experience more inflammation and are at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease.

These functions are carried out entirely by the kidneys. Diabetes and high blood pressure, for example, can impair their ability to function.

 


In the end, kidney damage may result in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Diet is the most significant risk factor for CKD-related death and disability, according to Source, making dietary changes an important part of treatment.
