Partha Banerjee Dubai | How Well Do You Understand Your Kidneys?by Partha Banerjee Partha Banerjee Dubai
Kidneys play a major position in our bodies to keep us healthy and active. But sadly most of us don't know much about them. We never give them the attention and care they deserve. In this connection, healthcare expert and renal care specialist Partha Banerjee Mumbai brings a quick list of a few questions and answers we need to know.
What's their role? They push waste and extra fluids from the body. Additionally, they produce hormones that make RBC’s and keeps the blood pressure in control.
Where are they located? These important bean-shaped organs are located behind the rib cage on either side of the spine.
Do you know how much blood these kidneys filter every day? They can fill a large bathtub each day after receiving the required amount. After that, they turn the waste and extra water into the urine that is about 2 quarts a day.
What might be the first sign of kidney disease? If something happens to the kidneys people usually don't have any kind of primary symptom. But as things get worse- the first thing that can be noticed is a change in toilet habits. Urinating more or less can be a signal of this problem. It is followed by tiredness, muscle cramps, loss of appetite, swollen hands, feet and dry, itchy skin with rashes.
Have you ever thought if the kidneys stop functioning what will be its consequences? It is true, that once they are unable to filter, the body gets overloaded with the wastes, fluids, and toxins. The result is- you are asked to go for dialysis or need a new kidney. Partha Banerjee Dubai says that it depends upon your condition; you may need the cleaning daily or a few times a week.
What is the most common cause of kidney disease? High blood pressure and diabetes are equally dangerous for your kidneys. These conditions make it harder for the kidneys to do their regular functions at the same pace.
Is it possible to live with one kidney? Yes, thousands of people live healthily after donating one kidney. Even some people are born with one kidney. In case, one of the kidneys gets damaged, missing or donated the other one can easily grow larger and finishes the task of both the kidneys.
Who can donate a kidney? Anyone who is matched with the needy body can donate. You can be a family, friend, or even a stranger for donating a kidney. Even after death, a kidney can be easily donated to help someone in need. As per the stats, it is said that more than 100,000 people are on the kidney transplant waiting list. As the supply is low and it is in huge demand.
If anyone in the family has a history of kidney disease you are more likely to get it. So start taking cares of your kidneys and hearts them, advises Partha Banerjee.
