March is National Kidney Month. Thursday, March 10th is World Kidney Day, how awesome is that! Here is Joyce Jackson, CEO of Northwest Kidney Centers to talk about kidney health and kidney month:
Kidneys and the heart, both go hand in hand. You can get a urine or blood test from any local lab in your community. A blood test is more comprehensive and is not that painful. Really.
If you have diabetes or high blood pressure, I encourage you to get checked. Even if you feel healthy, I still encourage you to get checked out. Trust me, I know from personal experience.
The American Kidney Fund offers free kidney health screenings, you can find one in your area or more information here.
I encourage you, love your kidneys, they will love you back! I also put up a badge about World Kidney Day on the right sidebar of the homepage (it is not an affiliate or ad link, meaning I’m not getting paid to have it on the site).
