Types of Kidney Disease

Types of Kidney Disease

Kidney Disease affects the ability of the body to clean your blood, filter extra water out of your blood, and help control your blood pressure. It also affects the production of red blood cells and vitamin D metabolism needed for bone health. 

Healthy kidneys:

  • Make an active form of vitamin D which is needed for bone health 
  • Make erythropoietin that prompts your body to make red blood cells 
  • Make renin that your body uses to help manage your blood pressure 
  • Remove waste from your blood after digestion, muscle activity, and exposure to medications to chemicals 
  • Keep a balance of minerals and water in your blood 

What Are The Types Of Kidney Disease?

There are two main types of kidney disease; acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease.

  • Acute Kidney Injury

An acute kidney injury is characterized by a temporary loss of kidney function lasting less than three months. Acute renal failure is usually caused by an injury or illness to the kidneys, drugs, blockages of the kidneys, or many other factors. Acute kidney injuries can be fully recovered from and people can live a normal life afterward. 

Because of this, it’s imperative to monitor your kidneys properly for the rest of your life if you’ve sustained an acute kidney injury. Maintaining a healthy diet and nutrition is one way to do this. It is also a good idea to have your kidney function checked twice a year by your doctor.

  • Chronic Kidney Disease

In chronic kidney disease, your kidneys have been damaged in a way that cannot be reversed. To be diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, the condition must be present for more than three months.

Chronic kidney disease can be managed for many years. This disease can be caused by genetics, infection, immune disorders that attack your kidneys, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

What Is The Most Common Cause Of Kidney Disease?

Diabetes is one of the biggest factors that increases your risk for kidney disease and it’s the number one cause of kidney failure. A healthy diet, being active and medicine can help manage diabetes and prevent health problems like kidney damage. 

On the other hand, having diabetes may also be linked with obesity. Having obesity makes you more likely to develop diabetes, the condition of having too much glucose circulating in your bloodstream. Obesity also causes diabetes to worsen faster. If you have obesity, you’re about six times more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than those at a healthy weight.

To help you with your condition, the key to preventing this disease is an efficient and healthy diet. 

HCG Diet

HCG Diet

People are worried that a diet that reduces calories rapidly will cause them to lose weight. Evidence suggests that the dangers of obesity far outweigh those associated with rapid weight loss. With the HCG Diet, obese individuals quickly lose weight by consuming nutritionally dense foods with hormone injections and limiting physical activity.

HCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy in the placenta that serves to nourish a growing fetus. The unique properties of HCG promote healthy tissue growth, preserving lean muscle and other tissues that support vital organ development.
