Drinking enough water is one of the recommendations to maintain kidney health

With prevention activities, lectures and exams, is being celebrated on Thursday (14), the World Kidney Day. In São Paulo health professionals make calls in 13 basic units Health and Hospital for State Civil Servants.

In Brasilia, the service began at 11am and goes to the mall 18h National Assembly. The motto of this year's campaign is Stop Beating Your Rim. The date will be remembered for yellow gold. Some important monuments and buildings of Brazil will be illuminated with this color.

In an interview with the president of Brazil Agency Brazilian Society of Nephrology (SBN), Daniel Rinaldi dos Santos, said the goals of the campaign is to draw attention to the disease population and spark interest for everyone to protect renal disease.

According to the doctor, the main causes of chronic kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure. He warned that if the patient does not seek treatment, the kidney loses its functions. Individuals with kidney disease begins to feel malaise, anemia, weakness, edema, pressure is difficult to control, until it reaches a stage where he can not survive without dialysis [procedure used to purify the blood of kidney patients] . With the campaign, we want to avoid that the individual reaches that stage.

When the patient does not seek treatment, the kidney loses its functions

Rinaldi said that there are eight golden rules to preserve kidney health: drink plenty of water, take good blood pressure, control blood sugar, make a proper diet, lose weight, if a person is overweight; avoid excessive salt in the diet, getting regular exercise, not smoking and not taking medications without medical supervision.

In Brasilia, patients who seek care today will measure blood pressure and waist circumference and receive preventive medical advice. For the nanny Elizângela Mezenes, 37, who suffers from high blood pressure, the initiative is extremely important for awareness. Some people do not really care for these things, do not go to the doctor. Since I found out I had blood pressure problems, have taken better care of my health to avoid future problems.

For the union Luciana Cruz, 38, who already had a renal crisis, the campaign helps those in need and those who have no knowledge guides. The campaign is good. I will follow to the letter of recommendation to see a doctor, because prevention is the best condition for whether is good or not.
