Drink Water, Nature’s Health Drink

 

With over two million Australians showing some sign of kidney disease, Kidney Health Australia has chosen International Water Day to call on people to drink water, nature’s health drink.

 

Anne Wilson CEO of Kidney Health Australia said, ”the organisation would also be encouraging all companies to print out fact sheets from the Kidney Health Australia website for the workplace water cooler, to get the kidney health message out to millions of Australians”.

 

“Water is nature’s health drink and the linking of kidney health awareness with drinking water is a perfect way for getting our vital message out to the broader community.”

 

n average, five new patients are accepted onto the Australian dialysis program each day, the cost of treating a patient with dialysis is $72,000 per annum and the number of patients on dialysis is increasing at 6% per annum.

 

Research shows over 25% of all patients coming to dialysis and transplantation do not see a kidney specialist until less than 90 days before dialysis starts, which is a clear indication of the need for a national awareness campaign on understanding and recognising the early causes of kidney disease.

 

Ms Wilson said research has shown that many people do not understand the main job of their kidneys is to remove toxins and excess water from our blood.

 

“Every day our kidneys filter an average of 200 litres of blood – a quantity that would fill 20 buckets!

 

“Besides this impressive, daily feat, kidneys also help to control our blood pressure, to produce red blood cells and to keep our bones healthy.”

 

Kidneys gradually lose their ability to function making it a “silent” disease as it often goes unnoticed because it may not be “felt”, Ms Wilson said.
