Heart and Kidney Disease

Apparently, if your kidneys are diseased then keep a close full eye on your heart. Or if your Hearts diseased watch out for your kidneys. New research proves that kidney diseases speed up heart diseases, and doctors have proven that heart disease can destroy your kidneys too. 50,000 patients were required for the study, and it was proven with simple routine cholesterol checks, urine, and blood checks. Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is quiet an epidemic. Over 19 million American citizens claim that they do not have it, when in fact they do. Kidneys fail to filter the waste of the bloodstream, so the symptoms are not obvious until the organs are completely damaged. Most CKD patients die of heart disease before their kidneys could disintegrate. Although it may seem far-fetched, but their is a logical link. High blood pressure and diabetes are a risk for chronic kidney disease and hear attacks. Patients who have heart disease should start checking for kidney disease.
