The kidneys manage acid balance
Knowing your risk for kidney disease
You can manage kidney disease with your health care providers guidance.
There is not a cure for CKD. However, there may be things you can do to slow the progression of kidney disease.
There are several strategies your health care provider may discuss with you. These may include dietary guidance, managing acid balance, blood pressure control, the use of angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors and if appropriate, glycemic control. Always follow their guidance to improve your personal outcome.
Although early acid imbalance is generally without noticeable symptoms, the consequence to your muscle, bones and kidneys can be serious6.
