Kidney Health for All – that is this year’s theme for World Kidney Day. In celebration of this ideal, and recognition of everyone impacted by the many forms of Chronic Kidney Disease – especially our Nephrotic Syndrome and FSGS Community – we’ve collected some posts from around the web to inform and support YOU. We also ask that you take a moment to be extra mindful of the amazing organs your kidneys are, and the big job they have filtering the waste from our bodies and keeping us healthy. Help them out today with some extra water, a good diet, and some exercise.
Keep reading for some helpful links and an infographic that puts a lot into perspective.
