World kidney day - 12 the March 2020

12 the March 2020 - on occasion of world kidney day an appeal to create awareness among masses as in USA about 48 % of people with severely reduced kidney function and not on dialysis are not aware of even kidney disease. I think this percentage may be higher in india .As DM and hypertension are main culprits representing about 3 out of 4 cases. About 1 of 3 adults with DM and 1 of 5 adults with hypertension may have kidney disease. Early detection, prevention and risk management is one of the strategies of to manage risk factors. Of late use of NSAIDS is becoming an important cause of CKD ., even herbal supplements are not safe . Salt reduction, increasing physical activity, dietary regulations will reduce the incidence of CKD in south Asia where prevalence is highest
