At present, because of the bad eating habits, the incidence of kidney disease in our country is getting higher and higher. Kidney disease is a silent killer. The kidney is about our body, the kidney is not good, the viscera will get sick. Traditional Chinese medicine is that the kidney is good supporting role of longevity. So what do we eat in our daily life, which is the worst way to hurt the kidney? Let's take a look at it.
Life, although it is often covered with a waist, joked that his kidney is not good, but in fact, the real understanding of the performance of kidney disease, less than 10%, and even many non nephrology doctors know little about kidney disease.
So, as one of the most important organs in the viscera, which have an important role in the kidney, kidney disease frequently why high?
The kidney is not good, the viscera are sick
Although the heart liver spleen lung and kidney, renal excretion in the five finally, but the most important is the role of it. Experts called for example: if the kidney compared to a "boiler", then the body produced by the burning of "slag" (metabolites) must be discharged by boiler. Once the "boiler" problems, waste row out, not only will damage the "boiler", the whole system will collapse.
Experts, the kidney has three functions, one is to generate urine, maintaining water balance. The human body has about 1 million 300 thousand glomeruli per kidney, which can filter and clean up to 200 liters of blood per day, equivalent to about 10 barrels of drinking water, forming about 1.8 liters of urine. When the body is too much or too little water, the urine from the kidney to regulate the body to maintain water balance." Two is the excretion of metabolites and toxic substances. "The metabolism of the human body will produce metabolic waste, such as urea, uric acid, creatinine, etc., by removing the waste from the urine of the kidney in order to maintain normal physiological activity." Three endocrine function. Such as the secretion of erythropoietin (EPO) to promote bone marrow hematopoiesis; the generation of active vitamin D regulate calcium and phosphorus metabolism, maintaining the normal structure and function of the bone; secrete vasoactive substances regulate blood pressure, etc..
It is precisely because the kidney has these three functions, so a kidney problem, other parts of the body will be a problem. Experts said that the early stages of kidney fatigue, fatigue, eyelid edema, pale face, a lot of foam in urine, urinary pain or difficulty. The next will have a loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, pain, nocturia, systemic edema, elevated blood pressure, breath with urine, skin itching, pain, numbness, muscle tremors, slow reaction etc.. If severe, these symptoms continue to increase, but also lead to heart, liver, lung and other organ failure.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has become one of the major diseases that threaten the public health in the world.
Developed countries in the general population of about 6.5% - 13.1% suffer from varying degrees of kidney disease, the number of patients with kidney disease in the United States has more than 20 million, the hospital admitted to the kidney patients up to about 1000000. People who have not gone to the doctor have a lot more than their patients.
Experts further pointed out that China chronic kidney disease prevalence rate is about 10%, every year because of uremia deaths is about 450 thousand, this result is shocking, and the people will not protect their kidneys have a great relationship."
"Compared with other major diseases that endanger human health, chronic kidney disease can be described as a silent killer." Experts, chronic kidney disease, including nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, renal failure, uremia, etc.. These diseases are very hidden, there is no obvious symptoms at the onset, it is not easy to cause patients to pay attention to, so many patients began to seek medical treatment has been developed for the end-stage renal disease, and even uremia. "The average annual medical costs in uremic patients more than 100 thousand yuan, so that many families' poverty caused by illness." The best way to avoid it is to properly protect your kidneys.
