The kidneys: these are a pair of a brownish bean like shaped organs that are delicate, complex and very important to normal body functioning. They lie just in the middle back which they are located on the either sides of the spine.
Basic Functions of the kidney:
- - Removal of toxic waste from the body which are passed out as urine
- - Production of some important hormones such as hormones that help in the regulation of calcium absorption and food phosphorus, hormones that helps the stimulation of bone marrows in the production of red blood cells, also another hormone which regulates the pressure of blood and blood volume.
- - Regulation of some vital minerals such as calcium, potassium and sodium.
Chronic kidney disease can be understand to be the gradual loss of proper functioning of the kidney over time due to one thing or the other that will eventually lead to permanent kidney failure if proper care is not taken.
In the United States, young adults and above (20 years and above) are presently having kidney disease. These young adults and above, account for over 15 per cent but less than 18 per cent of the total population of USA. In the USA, 1 in 6 persons has kidney disease. Also in UK, 1 in 5 people have kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease is much more common among the elderly (60 years and above), this may be associated with some diseases and conditions that plague the old age.
