Kidney Disease in Men
According to the National Kidney Foundation, more than 26 million Americans—one in nine adults—have kidney disease. Kidneys can become damaged after an acute infection, a traumatic injury or from an accumulating effect of chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes.
Most types of kidney disease are irreversible, but lowering the burden on the kidneys will slow further deterioration. Lifestyle changes and regular medical care are important steps. Keeping yourself in the best general health will also help keep you in the best health possible.
