The kidneys main function in the body is to filter waste from the blood. When waste products and excessive fluids build up in the blood, it results in kidney failure. The kidneys also balance electrolyte levels, determining how much water to release as urine, stimulate red blood cells production, and regulate blood pressure. When both kidneys fail completely, the only options are dialysis or transplant.
Kidney failure is determined by measuring Blood Urea Nitrogen(BUN), Creatinine, and Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) from a blood test.
Causes of Kidney failure can be blood loss, extreme dehydration, medication especially diuretics, and/or obstruction of blood flow to and from the kidneys.
The key to prevention is balance and PRO-activity. When you feed your body the proper nutrition, this diminishes inflammation and unwanted toxins. When the body is aligned and balanced mechanically with chiropractic care, the likelihood to need excessive pain medications, opiods, and cortisol injections is highly unlikely. So there are preventions solutions. Don’t wait until it is too late!
