March is National Kidney Month, sponsored by the National Kidney Foundation, and here at Fresh Nest Cleaning, we take kidney health seriously. National Kidney Month was created to, “increase awareness of kidney disease, promote the need for a cure, and spur advocacy on behalf of those suffeing with the emotional, financial and physical burden of kidney disease”
It is estimated, by the National Kidney Foundation, that over 26 million American adults have kidney disease and a large percentage of them do not even know that they have it until the
disease has progressed significantly and symptoms begin to present themselves.
Kidney Disease is not always preventable but there are ways to assist with prevention or at least, slow progression and assist with treatment.
Last week, we discussed how living with a chronic illness, such as kidney disease, can cause an individual to feel helpless over many variables that are outside of their control. Yet, the good news is that there are many factors that are within your control, such as quality of life and a healthy, clean environment that can positively impact your mental health.
For the remaining weeks of March, we will discuss other topics regarding National Kidney Month and how Fresh Nest Cleaning is excited to be apart of contributing to the research and
awareness of Kidney Disease by donating 10% of March profits towards the National Kidney Foundation.
