Kidneys are the organs that help filter waste products from
the blood. They are also involved in regulating blood pressure,
electrolyte balance, and red blood cell production in the body.
Symptoms of kidney failure are due to the build-up of waste products in the body that may cause weakness, shortness of breath, lethargy, and confusion. Inability to remove potassium from the bloodstream may lead to abnormal heart rhythms and sudden death. Initially kidney failure may cause no symptoms. Unlike many diseases, kidney disease often has no symptoms until it is very advanced.
Kidney disease is usually a progressive disease, which means that the damage in the kidneys tends to be permanent and can't be undone. So it is important to identify kidney disease early before the damage is done. The good news is that kidney disease can be treated very effectively if it is caught in the early stages. This is very important, since kidney disease also makes your risks for heart disease and stroke higher.
Treatment for kidney disease can help relieve symptoms, slow or prevent progression of the condition, and reduce the risk of developing related problems.
When you or someone you love is diagnosed with
kidney (renal) failure, you want the very best care available.
Dialysis is used primarily as an artificial replacement for lost

Immunizations are an important part of staying
healthy throughout adult life. There are specific vaccine recommendations
for different ages and adult circumstances. Some adults may be
more at risk for certain diseases due to age, a preexisting illnesses,
certain lifestyle, or type and locations of travel.
Vaccine-preventable diseases are infectious diseases that can be prevented by immunization (vaccination). Traditionally, vaccines have been associated with protecting young children, but far too many adults become ill, are disabled, and die each year from diseases that could easily have been prevented by vaccines. Vaccines not only prevent disease in the people who receive them but often create "herd immunity", meaning that even unvaccinated individuals are at lower risk of disease if most of their community is immunized. Everyone from young adults to older adults can benefit from immunizations.

Preventive health is best described
as "warding off disease".
It is a process of making small regular decisions and taking positive action on health, diet, relationships, exercise and lifestyle. These actions give your body the best chance of remaining free from disease. Good health is defined as a balance of physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual health. Preventive health is the science and art of helping people change their lifestyle to move toward a state of optimal health.
Our aim is to provide quality and affordable healthcare services by increasing awareness and access to preventive healthcare.
