Important Facts About High Blood Pressure (Hypertension), Diabetes, High Cholesterol, Metabolic Syndrome, Gout & Weight Management
Diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure) are important causes of kidney problems. Overweight, obesity and metabolic syndrome are also linked. In addition, patients with kidney problems due to other causes are more susceptible to develop metabolic problems like type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, gout and hypertension.
A great part of the management of kidney dysfunction centers in controlling these conditions.
Diet, exercise, habit modifications and loss of weight are central in the management of these conditions and kidney problems, and the prevention of disease occurrence or progression.
