Free Kidney Check Up Camp in Kasturba Hospital on World Kidney Day

World Kidney Day is observed on March 8. According to statistics over one lac people Indians are diagnosed with kidney disease every year// and about 90 per cent die as they do not get timely treatment.

Kasturba Hospital, Manipal had announced a free Special Kidney Health Check-up package in connection with World Kidney Day-2007. The camp is scheduled from March 8 to 16 and includes consultation and urine analysis for random glucose and creatinine.

World Kidney day is observed to create awareness among public on the importance of kidneys. Kidney does an astounding job of filtering around 180 liters of our blood every day. It also regulates salts in our blood and keeps our body temperature and blood pressure under control.

The intention of World Kidney Day 2007 is to make people aware that ‘kidney disease is common, harmful and treatable.’ Chronic kidney disease is prevalent all over the world as a silent epidemic.

Dr Ravindra Prabhu, Associate Professor and Head, Department of Nephrology cites Diabetes mellitus and high blood pressure as the two main causes of Chronic Kidney Disease.

Chronic Kidney Diseases (CKD) includes all conditions that affect our kidneys and reduce their ability. Kidney diseases lead to other complications like high blood pressure, anemia, weak bones and nerve damage.

The early symptoms include high blood pressure, painful urination, bulge around the eyes, swelling of feet, and a constant feeling of fatigue or lack of energy. Proper diet and intake of fluids and regular exercise keep kidneys healthy.

Keeping blood sugar and blood pressure under control helps to prevent the disease. Progression of the disease can be halted if detected early. Hence those suffering from diabetes mellitus, hypertension, obese individuals, smokers and all those over 50 years of age should undergo Kidney Health Checks annually.
