The foundation wants people to talk to their doctor and get their kidney health checked out.

Its theme was: "Kidney Health for Everyone, Everywhere". Kidney diseases are majorly caused by uncontrolled diabetes and blood pressure.

While the chronic kidney disease (CKD) was progressively increasing in the South Asian countries like Pakistan, the "World Kidney Day 2019" was celebrated here on Thursday like other parts of the world with a renewed pledge to continue efforts for raising awareness among the people about the disease so as to check the burden of disease by following precautionary measures.

Overwork, lack of sleep, smoking and alcohol abuse are likely to cause damage to the kidney, Yang said. Since some kidney diseases may pass on from one generation to the next, the speakers urged those having a family history of kidney disease (such as polycystic kidneys) to ensure that all other members of their family are also screened through an ultrasound of the abdomen.

"My message to the public is that they should look after their health, practise prevention because it is very cheap".

"Kidney disease is increasing at a faster rate than any other noncommunicable disease in the USA, and that's why we're working so hard to ensure people at risk are tested", said LaVarne A. Burton, president and CEO of the American Kidney Fund.

Kidneys serve a vital role by filtering waste and excess fluid from the blood and maintaining a healthy balance of water, salts, and minerals. According to a United States medical report, she said, 44% people with diabetes were found facing kidney related problems whereas 29% of the patients of high blood pressure share this condition. If your kidneys are not working properly, you will have dry and itchy skin.

Painkillers like NSAIDs, paracetamol and opioids can have severe consequences on kidney functions, especially if you have a kidney problem.

Obesity is considered the root cause of many problems including kidney failures. However, frequent urination can also be a sign of urinary tract infection and an enlarged prostate in men. Stress causes the blood pressure to shoot up, putting a strain on the organs. This can make it hard to get a good night's sleep at night.

People with high blood pressure are also at a greater risk of developing kidney diseases, said Dr Zehra, of National Institute of Kidney and Urological Diseases. Sleep apnea is common in obese people.

SIUT organised free clinical testing such as blood tests, urine tests, measurement of height, weight, body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure etc. But, when kidney filters have damaged, these blood cells begin to leak in the urine.

It should be noted, however, that anyone could suffer from kidney diseases, irrespective of age and gender.

Kidney disease can be detected by the doctor after performing certain tests to check the functionality of the organ.

As kidney disease usually does not go away with medications or time and has the tendency of worsening over time, it is better to take small steps at the right time.
