Kidneys work as filters in the human body. They are also crucial in the production of red blood cells and the regulation of blood pressure. However, people with chronic kidney disease may face such factors faced by improper functioning of kidneys as:

  • High blood pressure;
  • Diabetes;
  • Repeated kidney infections;
  • Inflammation of the glomeruli, or kidney filtering units;
  • Obesity, etc. 

The most common symptoms of chronic kidney disease include sleeping or eating issues, a decline in mental acuity, nausea, consistent itching, shortness of breath, chest pain, swollen ankles or feet, etc. However, do not feel stressed when you or any of your relatives experience such symptoms. There are many ways that help individuals and their caregivers provide proper management of chronic illness disease. It includes: 

  • Managing blood pressure levels. A doctor can put together a strategy of how to keep a person’s blood pressure in the recommended range. The most common approaches to bringing the blood pressure to normal include boosting physical activity levels, quitting smoking, and obtaining sufficient quantities of sleep.
  • Doing regular checkups to ensure that glomerular filtration rate and urine albumin levels both remain consistent.
  • Taking prescriptions exactly when and how they are prescribed.
  • Making appropriate changes to the lifestyle. Such changes may be made based on the recommendations from a nutritionist and the changes in the meal plan. It’s also important to do a suitable exercise routine to stay in good physical condition.
