Kidney disease - prevention - Better Health Channel -open

Kidney disease risk factors include diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, smoking and age. Early detection and treatment can increase the life of the kidneys. High blood pressure can lead to or be a sign of kidney disease. Exercise, a balanced diet and drinking plenty of water will help to keep your kidneys working well.


Kidney failure - Better Health Channel -open

Kidney disease can sometimes lead to kidney failure. If kidney disease is found early, medications and lifestyle changes can increase the life of your kidneys. However, if the kidneys fail completely, they don't often recover. People with kidney failure need dialysis or a transplant to stay alive.
