Tuesday, June 7: The kidneys’ role in our health is easy to overlook, but make no mistake. The kidneys are the filter that cleans our body from toxins and waste, while returning all the beneficial substances like amino acids, glucose and hormones into the bloodstream. That’s why having healthy kidneys is key for a good quality of life!

Tuesday, June 14: What do you know about protein and your kidneys? Some studies suggest that a diet with moderate levels of calcium, low salt and low in animal protein provide the best protection against kidney stones.

Tuesday, June 21: Prevention is key! Kidney disease advances gradually and it is important to prevent it in the first place, or control it once it has settled in. Making the right food and lifestyle choices are your best allies against chronic kidney disease.
