Call for Coaches

Obesity, or having too much fat in the body, can cause kidney diseases. According to reports, obesity increases the risk of developing major risk factors of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) like diabetes and hypertension. This is because with obesity, the kidneys have to work harder, filtering more blood than normal (hyperfiltration) to meet the metabolic demands of the increased body weight. Also, it increase in function can damage the kidney and raise the risk of developing CKD. But obesity is treatable.
