PROTECTING THE KIDNEYS TO PROTECT YOUR HEALTH?
While they are relatively small, our kidneys are an amazing feat of physiology that few truly grasp the complexities of. What we give no thought to as well is how easy it can be to damage them. Lifetime exposures of Ibuprofen, Tylenol add up quickly and contribute to kidney failure. Other drugs are also well know to shut down the kidneys. Dehydration, prediabetes and heavy metals also contribute to kidney damage. In this particular study, cystatin C, a marker of kidney function, had a direct relationship to risk of dying. Higher levels led to almost double the risk of dying.
Should probably think about that next time you decide to pop an Advil or Tylenol before seeing your chiropractor..
