Hemodialysis Treatment for Kidney Failure Information Guide Released by Online Health Resource Agingfit.com
Date:12/13/2012

Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 13, 2012

The health problem and solutions website AgingFit.com has announced the release of their comprehensive kidney failure treatment information for people seeking more information about options and what to expect. The information was created with the goal of explaining medical jargon in a clear and simple to understand manner in a way that people facing the procedure are more fully aware of what to expect.

The information is now available, free, online and people can review the guide from the convenience of home: click here to visit.

"Receiving dialysis can be scary and intimidating. Unfortunately, Doctors today don't always have the time or to treat patients like people and explain fully in layman's what a person can expect. Our goal is to empower people with information vital to their health," stated Glen Greenbaum, Agingfit.com company representative.

The Mayo Clinic reports the procedure is a "serious responsibility", but it does not mean people cannot live an active and productive life. Dietary guidelines and becoming accustomed to the treatment schedule requirements one can continue life in a normal fashion. Additionally, the Mayo Clinic information states Hemodialysis is necessary once kidney function deteriorates to just 10-15 percent of normal.

Common causes of kidney failure include:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Kidney inflammation (glomerulonephritis)
  • Blood vessel inflammation (vasculitis)
  • Polycystic kidney disease (cysts in the kidney)

A recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine points to a possible obesity link to kidney failure. This link may be due to increased risk of diabetes and high blood pressure in the obese, two common causes of renal failure.

"The right information and making healthy choices is one key to reducing the risk for degenerative diseases," added Mr Greenbaum.

Without a definitive cure for kidney failure likely in the short term, it's important the public is well informed on current treatment options, the inherent risks, and how to cope. The internet is empowering patients to further their own knowledge, and sites like AgingFit.com are helping ensure that sufferers are aware of the resources and information available to help them..
