Today’s ever changing lifestyle has made us more prone to certain diseases and these can put us at risk of developing complications. People who are prone to frequent urinary tract infections, kidney stones, diabetes, hypertension and heart disease are also at risk of developing kidney disease. Morbidity and mortality rates of kidney diseases in the Philippines have been on the rise.

The rise of kidney disease can be attributed to poor dietary practices, smoking, alcohol abuse and sedentary lifestyles. Prevention is still the best answer. Early recognition of kidney disease as well as early and timely referral to a nephrologists once kidney disease has been detected, delays the onset of complications.
