    More than 26 million Americans have chronic kidney disease (CKD), but many don’t realize it because people often do not have symptoms early in the disease. This March, during National Kidney Month, Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), the nation’s leading network of dialysis facilities, is urging Americans to learn more about CKD. Those who are at risk should get screened regularly, since early intervention may slow the progression of the disease.

    Kidneys are remarkable organs that keep the body healthy in many ways, including cleaning waste products from the blood and releasing important hormones into the blood. Healthy kidneys filter about 200 liters of blood a day, as well as help regulate blood pressure and direct the production of red blood cells. But they can be damaged by diabetes, uncontrolled high blood pressure and even the use of some over-the-counter medications and supplements.

    CKD – a loss of kidney function that can take place over a period of months or years – often goes undiagnosed in its early stages when it may still be treated by medication, exercise and diet changes. Once the disease progresses to kidney failure, the only options for survival are dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant.

    “It’s important to find out early if you have CKD, because there are often interventions that may slow its progression,” says Dr. Dugan W. Maddux, vice president of Kidney Disease Initiatives at FMCNA. “Especially if you have diabetes or high blood pressure, you need to understand your risks and get regular screenings.”

    The Top 10 List: What You Need to Know About Kidney Disease

    About 13 percent of U.S. adults have CKD.
    The leading causes of CKD are diabetes and high blood pressure, which cause an estimated 44 percent and 28 percent, respectively, of new U.S. kidney failure cases. Diabetes rates are rising in large part due to increasing obesity rates.
    Most people are born with two kidneys, but you only need one functioning kidney to live a full, healthy life.
    CKD progresses in stages and, if untreated, can lead to complete loss of kidney function. At CKD stage five, when both kidneys fail completely, the only options for survival are dialysis or a kidney transplant.
    The progression of CKD can often be slowed, but many people do not have symptoms early in the disease. Symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, diminished appetite and weight loss occur late in the course of CKD.
    CKD affects people of all ages. However, those 60 and over are the most likely to develop CKD.
    Certain ethnic groups, including African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans, are more likely than Caucasians to develop CKD.
    About 430,000 Americans with kidney failure rely on regular blood-filtering dialysis treatments to survive.
    Although most patients receive dialysis treatments in a clinic three days a week, a growing number (nearly 40,000 U.S. patients in 2013) undergo dialysis in the comfort of their own homes.
    More than 90,000 U.S. patients are waiting for kidney transplants, but only about 18,000 of those will get a kidney transplant each year.
    If you or a loved one are at risk for CKD, please visit your physician and get screened

      I just read that comment and it seemed like it took me 91 days this time instead of like 45 days.

      Dialysis, isolation, depression, anger. Each of these words has a separate meaning but they seem to go hand-in-hand with each other. For many dialysis patients, these words combine to form a “new normal” state brought on by living with kidney failure.

      Choosing a dialysis clinic is an important decision. If you are a new patient, traveling, or simply looking to transfer to new facility, this decision can seem overwhelming. You will need to consider many factors, including the location, distance from your home, schedule, quality-of-care, and much more.

    What the hell is this guy smoking? Any allegations of officer misconduct shall be presumed to be true if there is no body cam??? Where the hell is due process in that? This kid needs to go back to law school, my head hurts too much to even read the rest.

    Get in touch with reality. Anyone who has practiced criminal law knows that almost all police officers are dishonest all the time. They are proud of their ability to lie and deprive people of their freedom. They high five each other back at the station after they fill their pc affidavits with lies. The only thing that is changing that is technology such as GPS and body cams. If they have a body cam and it doesn’t show what they are saying then they are pulling another fast one. All of those arrests should be thrown out.

      All most all are dishonest all the time?? Some surely lie, but then so do witnesses, victims, snitches, defendants, judges and even an attorney or two have been proven liars. You paint with broad strokes my friend. You don’t need to be a defense attorney to know that humans lie.

      I gotta a better idea that might bring you a little peace. Get on your knees and pray for all the innocent people whose lives your have ruined.

      It is best to explore transplant early in your disease course, before you need to start dialysis. This way, you might be able to get a transplant ‘pre-emptively,’ without ever needing to start dialysis.

      It can take time to find the right transplant center, complete the transplant evaluation, explore live kidney donor options, and get on the deceased donor transplant list if needed. If you are not yet on dialysis and have a GFR of 20 or less, you can already begin building “wait time” on the deceased donor transplant list.

    Bloom is just another clueless bimbo. This dude wears his pants way too tight with no socks in a suit 3 sizes too small, but the bimbos in the office lov him ! They keep him around to raise morale.

    He’s grandstanding. He stands in court and goes forward on all kinds of lousy cases. What a bozo.

      Give the poor, uninformed fellow a break. He went to a crappy law school and his mom is also his dad.

      Plus he can’t afford a decent suit that fits him..or socks apparently.

      Currently, there are over 93,000 people on the kidney transplant waiting list. The wait for a deceased donor could be 5 years, and in some states, it is closer to 10 years. Patients are prioritized by how long they’ve been on the waiting list, their blood type, immune system activity and other factors. 80% of the people on the waiting list are on kidney dialysis. The longer a person is on dialysis and has to wait for a transplant, the short and long term success rates are negatively affected.

    Two whites, one Afro-Hispanic and an Asian walk into a bar. I don’t think race was the problem. Perhaps it was just plain old malfeasance and lack of giving a fuck when many fucks should have been given.

    Does that apply to prosecutors as part of the law enforcement as well? Cause I’d like to accuse him of accepting bribes through his mom to drop cases. Now cut his pay and make him prove he’s innocent with clear and convincing evidence.

    Wait till a lying cop puts you, or a family member in prison. The SAO not only encourages the lies but rubber stamps that first cop lie, without review, then tells prosecutors to get convictions regardless. Got to fill the prison for profit quota and bilk the public of their EARNINGS to support those retirement packages. Whataboutism and lack of leadership will be the end of us all!
