Houston-based donation bank turns focus to women on World Kidney Day

It's World Kidney Day: Meet the mother & son who share special bond & kidney

"March 8 marks International Women's Day, a day when we celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievement of women".

Smoking harms your kidneys just like diabetes and hypertension.

The risk of developing CKD is at least as high in women as in men, and may even be higher. Apart from physiological matters, women come across major issues like uneven access to care and psychosocial reasons.

"In women, hypertension occurs mostly after post menopause while diabetes triggers at any age". Control your blood sugar.

One in 10 New Zealanders has kidney disease. Kidney disease is also linked to complications with pregnancy: women who have CKD are at increased risk for negative outcomes in pregnancy, both for the mother and the baby; in turn, pregnancy-related complications can increase the risk of kidney disease [1]. "And the good news is that the predictors (or risk factors) associated with kidney disease are both well-known and very easily tested for".

Many people don't even know they have it until the situation becomes dire. When these symptoms are accompanied by fever, nausea, vomiting or back pain, it's likely that the infection has travelled to the kidneys.

"Women are much more likely to be living donors for kidney transplant than men and that is a statistic that we have known for quite a while", said Dr. Adeera Levin, professor of medicine at the University of British Columbia and the executive director of the BC Provincial Renal Agency.

Others: One may also suffer from hyperkalemia (excess potassium in the blood), increased blood pressure, atherosclerosis (deposition of cholesterol in the blood vessels and arteries, often resulting in strokes, heart attacks, and cardiovascular diseases), sexual dysfunction, and loss of libido. If glucose stays in the blood instead of breaking down, it can act like a poison. When the kidneys are damaged, they have trouble removing creatinine from blood, the doctors said. DaVita Kidney Care strives to improve patients' quality of life by innovating clinical care, and by offering integrated treatment plans, personalized care teams, and convenient health-management services. The damaged vessels can not filter wastes from the blood as they are supposed to.

The nephrologist added: "Usually, women who were treated for eclampsia during pregnancy may have their blood pressures normalised after delivery".

However, Leanne was initially careful when it comes to her diet, she wished that she had taken her health condition more seriously when she was a teenage girl.

The celebration was initiated by the joint committee of "International Society of Nephrology and International Federation of Kidney Foundations" and was first observed by 66 countries in 2006.

"So at every level there is disadvantage for kidney disease diagnosis, detection and prevention among women; that's why this year is focusing on how that trend can change".
