American College of Nursing Offers New Hemodialysis Program

Kidney Failure
Our body works as one well-oiled machine. Our blood, working as the analytical oil, touches every system and organ in the body. What we consume ,makes its way from our mouth to our stomach to our intestines, where its waste is brought into the blood vessel. The vessel carries the waste through the systems of our body. Finally it makes its way to the kidney, our own personal filtration system. After many years of eating the processed food, and any other toxic intake, that our culture has unfortunately become so accustomed to; these ingredients start to take a toll on our bodies. Just like if one decided not to change the oil in his or her car, or when they did it was the cheapest oil around. This oil cycles through the car, touching all the essential parts that make the car run. Sooner than later the car parts need to be replaced so that your car can have lasting life. Our bodies work in a similar way. Taking the time to observe the products that we put into our system will allow us to live stronger and longer lives.

Kidney failure is one of the many diseases that can occur as side effect to other problems that arise due to our intake of toxins. Some products we consume we are unaware are toxins at all. Ibuprofen or aspirin taken over long periods of time can be one of the harmful causes of kidney failure. Processed food with huge amounts of corn syrup, cigarettes, excessive alcohol, coffee and salt intake all play a role in leading to organ failing outcomes. Whatever organ or hormone is failing due toxic intake or hereditary inheritances, the kidney has to bare the hardship and compensate to clean the blood.

People with diabetes have higher risk for kidney failure. Diabetes is caused by the failure of the pancreatic gland to produce insulin. Although diabetes can be hereditary, it can also occur from mistreatment of the body. Insulin, which is produced by the pancreas aids in the cell intake of glucose. Glucose, more commonly known as sugar, is our body’s fuel; it’s how we get up and go. Someone with diabetes may not produce insulin at all, may not produce enough insulin, or their body can no longer detect and use the insulin for its purpose. This causes the glucose to stay in the blood stream instead of being taken in by the cells to feed us energy. After a while this extra sugar, which ends up in the kidney to be filtered out of the body, affects the kidney negatively.

High blood pressure can cause kidney failure, as well as being caused by kidney failure. Uncontrolled high blood pressure or hypertension can speed up the progression of kidney failure. Good control and treatment of blood pressure may slow the progression of kidney failure, and delay or prevent the need for dialysis. In fact, controlling blood pressure is the only thing proven to delay the need for dialysis, according to Baxter international Inc. Getting blood pressure checked is essential in healthy living.
