World Kidney Day

Today is World Kidney Day. Yes, a day to recognize all your kidney do for you.

Did you know that your kidneys work hard in your body. They help regulate phosphorous, potassium, calcium and sodium, as well as other nutrients your body uses. As a kidney patient on dialysis I can attest to the power of the kidney in the human body. I have to follow a rigid diet to regulate these things now that my kidneys are not working. The kidneys also push toxins, waste, and fluid out of your body. Without the kidneys functioning, dialysis becomes the only choice. Say thanks to your two working kidneys sometime today.
