Renal failure is no laughing matter. It is a very scary disease. Luckily, there have been many advancements in medical techology that are helping people fight this disease every day.

Kidney disease can be a very serious, life-threatening illness. It is very important to eat correctly and take precautions to protect your kidneys.

I concur, kidney disease is very serious. Until I started taking my A & P classes and now my nursing classes, I didn’t realize how much the kidneys regulated within our bodies. It is highly important that we take care of ourselves, listen to our bodies and watch our diet and get plenty of exercise to maintain healthy kidneys as well as healthy bodies.

very important to take care of them. I have seen many patients on dialysis and it takes a huge toll on the whole body

Amber Newman April 8, 2016 at 12:08 pm

i agree, it is not a laughing matter. Anyone who laughs at is is cold hearted.

I like the video which talked about dialysis, it was helpful. I found the second video to be most helpful. And the third video is good for nutrition tips.

I did like the nutrition tips too. I have a friend that gets frequent kidney stones and will be passing this information along to her.

These videos really hit a sensitive nerve for me. My father dealt with allot of kidney issues and was on dialysis for awhile before he passed away. He never ate they way he should have and I felt he just was in denial of any way to help make things better. I was really happy to have watched these videos so have a better understanding.

I agree with you abrewer diabetes do a awesome job to not hurt their bodies and keep the right stuff in their body.

I think I liked the 3rd video the most. It was simple, direct, and gave some good advice on diet changes that can effect kidney health. I have always heard that red meat wasn’t the best for you. I don’t eat a lot of red meat, and I know I don’t eat enough fish. I have heard the cranberry juice thing as well – I have had a few bladder infections and I do not like cranberry juice. I do, however, take a cranberry supplement daily for maintenance and prevention. It works well for me!

I knew that diabetes was associated with kidney disease but wasn’t sure exactly. Diabetes causes a lot of problems and I certainly hope that is one thing I don’t ever experience. Thank God for Dialysis, major life saver. I think it is very interesting how it works in replacing/cleaning the blood. I know not to drink lots of sodas and caffeine following calcium can cause kidney stone, however, I didn’t know meat could. Good thing I don’t eat a lot of it. I guess I will just have to deal with being anemic. Man our food choices are really narrowing down throughout all these videos.

Barber JN November 22, 2011 at 6:06 pm

You aren’t kidding! I am almost afraid to eat anything anymore! haha! I have caught myself looking harder at food labels and I take so many supplements now I have to use one of those weekly pill holder things that are associated with the elderly.

When the first video asked, “Who gets kidney disease?” I was like “me!” I was 15… almost 16… when diagnosed September 2007. It was a completely random genetic disease, even though we had no clue it ran in my family. I was on dialysis from March-June 2010 before I got a kidney transplant June 22 2010. The anti-rejection medicines gave me temporary diabetes (that is just beginning to go away) even though I never had high blood sugar before. Diabetics should be very careful… managing diabetes is a lot easier than managing diabetes with kidney disease!

I once knew an old lady that had kidney disease and her doctor told her to drink half a can of beer a day and her kidneys would improve, I wonder if that was true.

WhiteKD November 19, 2011 at 5:00 pm

I have heard something similar to that…..at the first signs of a kidney infection you should drink a beer and the first signs of a UTI drink the original Alka Seltzer. I know first hand the Alka Seltzer works…..sounds crazy, but it does!

Ive heard that drinking a few beers a day can help you pass kidney stones. Who knows.

I did not realize that tea can increase your risk for kidney stones. I drink tea all the time. it is one of my favorite things to drink actually. what i see most working on a cardiac and renal floor is that people with kidney disease have dialysis and they are ok with that but they have trouble with their diets. There are a lot of restrictions for a renal diet that most of them do not always follow which leads to worsening of their condition.

Reply

kbennett April 6, 2015 at 12:04 am

I use to drink tea on a daily basis but ended up cutting back on how much I drink tea. After watching this video, it made me realize that I made a good choice of cutting back on how much I drink tea. I started drinking more water, V8’s, & drinks that are low in sugar.

I was a dialysis patient for three months as an eighteen-year-old high school senior. It was incredible! I was a lot sicker than most people my age are on dialysis, but I am still thankful for it, because it bridged me to transplant. I would have died in March 2010 without it.

Wow what a recovery. Its amazing how science has evolved so much that we can actually clean someone’s blood. I’m so glad you got your transplant!

Spencer KA November 3, 2011 at 2:33 pm

These videos explained a lot to me. I had a cousin who died of kidney failure in his sleep and I also lost a really close friend to kidney failure. These videos helped me to understand way more than I knew. Both my cousin and friend were young men, one in which had diabetes but the other everyone thought was as healthy as could be.

Our whole body is truly effected by what we put in it. The damage that can be done by drinking colas or eating too much meat can cost you your life. It would be hard for me to sit down to eat many of the things that have been in my diet previously. This exercise has truly been eye-opening. Thanks.

Kidney disease is a very complicated illness. It has a affect on your body that is damaging. It can lead to edema and cause serious stress on your body. Your kidneys filter your blood and help keep your body healthy. Once your kidneys fail you have a certain amount of time on dialysis before your body can’t handle the stress of it all.

I never knew that diabetes and kidney disease were connected…it’s really bad that soft drinks and a large amount of protein can lead to kidney stones…I’ve cut back a lot on drinking Cokes, but I still eat a lot of meat. I know a lot of people that’s had problems with kidney stones, though I’ve never experienced one myself.

I understand this all only too well about the importance of blood sugar and renal failure…I ahve taken care of SO MANY patients that have gone into renal failure, and they had *NO IDEA* that their diabetes needed to be controlled…..this is one aspect of education I try and preach. Nobody needs to loose their kidneys because of high blood sugar!

SheDM, I totally agree with you. there are so many complication associated with diabetes. I spoke with a diabetes doctor the other day and he told me that he doesnt lose patients to diabetes but most commonly to heart complications or kidney failure. He has only had one patient go into a diabetic coma and die. This is a serious illness and if we could just have a magic cure the world would be a better place

Diabetes, I even hate the way the word sounds, has so many complications. To think that something as good as sugar can be so bad for you. The end result of not taking care of your health after a diagnosis is of diabetes and high bloodpressure is dialysis. I would not ever want myself or a family member to be on dialysis.

SRS April 9, 2011 at 12:29 am

Really scary thing since I have has kidney stones 4 times in the past eight years!! I am here to tell you that this hurts as bad if not worse that giving birth. Each time I have had them I had to go to the emergency room and get flushed out and given a high dose of pain medication to knock me down. I have tried cutting all sorts of things that the internet has told me to cut out of my diet. They always seem to come back around from time to time. As quickly as they appear they then disappear. I have never gone to a specialist but probably should. I have actually caught only one of the stones. I assume I have passed many more but never caught them.

I have never had a kidney stone , but have seen patients with them and they are in a LOT of pain . I’ve also cared for patients on dialysis and yes it does help them but it really takes a lot out of them they are usually spent for a whole day after . They also have to watch their diets . I’ve also seen their ports bleed a lot after and had to send them to the ER for care of this. There is a lot of issues associated with dialysis, but it does save lives.

I didnt realize that the kidney and diabetes were related! I think it is cool that everything it filtered through our kidneys. It seems like they do alot of work. It is amazing that they can filter everything we eat for 50 years or more without ever having promblems but we have to change the oil filters in our cars every few months.

The first video really helped me to see how kidney disease can affect everyone. There is a clear connection between people with diabetes and kidney disease which I was aware of before seeing the video, but what I was unaware of is that high blood pressure is the second leading cause of kidney disease. This is a scary fact to learn for me because I know that hypertension runs in my boyfriend’s family and he has it already and doesn’t listen to me when I tell him he needs to eat healthier to manage his high blood pressure so at least now I have one more reason to give him for needing to eat healthy.

CMontgomery7026 July 23, 2012 at 12:39 am

I agree with you that the videos did help to show how kidney disease can affect everyone. High blood pressure unfortunately goes untreated a lot because people don’t believe they have it if they don’t feel bad. Its hard to make people understand.

Kidney disease knows no bounderies. I did not know that certain ethnic groups have a higher tendency to suffer from kidney disease.

Diabetes and kidney function seems to be closly related. It is amazing how just a yearly urine (simple) test can diagnose this silent attacker and killer.

Dialysis is a life saver for sure!. It is amazing how we posess the knoledge to filter the blood in order to maintain a normal lifestyle.

High calcium and meats are enimies for kidney problems. I have had kidnye problems and cranberry juice realy does work in an awesome way! I did not know that high blood pressure could give you kidney problems. Wow. this video was very informative.

I never knew that kidney disease affects everyone! Its really common in young African American males and hispanics. The kidney is very important to our bodies to maintain healthy. It secrutes waste and takes in nutrients. When the kidney takes in too much gulclose it leaks out into the system which makes us lose nutrients and etc. I leaned that kidney faliure is due to diabetes, high blood pressure, and hypertension.

Maintaining a normal weight, staying active, and eating healthy can help prevent kidney damage. But when its beyond repair thats when dialysis steps into play. It serves to clean the blood and toxins throughout your body. It’s amazing how much technology has saved ourselves. Kidney stones are one of the most painful thing but with simple steps such as watching calcium level, meat intake, sugar, and sodium it helps prevent them from happening. Im really going to start drinking more tea and taking cranberry juice and magnesuim to help prevent the stones. Watching what we eat and how much we exercise really does affect how long we live.

Dialysis extended a friend of the families life by over 5 years. This may not seem like much but it meant a lot to her family and friends. She did have diabetes for a long time prior to dialysis but she seemed to eat a balanced diet.
The cranberry juice was a pleasant surprise and the sodas having a bad effect was something that I knew but have had a hard time breaking the habit. I do like my Cokes. But it is as much an addiction as smoking is to some people.

I am right there with you, I have not had children yet, but I passed a couple stones recently in fact and thought I was about to die. Just laying in one position brought tears to my eyes, I couldn’t get comfortable or anything. I take magnesium every other day plus Niacin B6 and B12 daily along with my daily vitamin. Hope its not to much but they are both water soluble so I figure I am safe.

My mom suffers with kidney stones. She never gets it checked out, or to see why she gets so many.

I got kidney stones from drinking too much wine. It was more painful than childbith.

This was upsetting to hear. I am trying to give up soda. Then I learn that tea and wine can still hurt me. Whats a girl to do??
