what is chronic kidney disease?

Last Friday I went to the lecture about chronic kidney disease(CKD.)

The definition of the CKD is the condition that damage your kidneys and that decrease their ability to keep you healthy.

Now in Japan, There are 330,000 dialysis patients. Because of decreasing Japanese population, the number of dialysis patients reached a plateau.

The average age of dialysis patients is 68 years old.
And many patients have been dialyzed for over 5 years.

In the lecture risk factors of dialysis are hypertension, smoking, hyperlipidemia and so on.

The patient who I was in charge of before continued bad living habits.

In kidney rehabilitation exercise, water intake, diet, medicine, and education are very important.

I thought enjoying is the most important in rehabilitation.
