March is National Kidney Awareness Month
Kidney disease is also referred to as the "silent killer". Many individuals diagnosed with some form of kidney failure never experienced any symptoms. Don't wait! If you have any of these symptoms, or if you haven't had your annual check-up... schedule your next appointment immediately.
Constant pain in your lower back area
Metallic taste in your mouth
Swelling (retaining fluid in the hands, feet or ankles)
Changes in urination
If untreated, kidney disease can also increase your chances of developing other diseases such as heart disease, vessel disease, osteopenia, nerve damage, and a host of other illnesses.
