Can You Live a Normal Life with Kidney Disease?

Posted by Reliant Renal Care

When you’re looking for state-of-the-art home dialysis machines, you’ve come to the right place at Reliant Renal Care. We believe that patients with kidney disease deserve the highest quality-of-life possible, which is why we’ll always do what we can to fulfill that goal. Because kidney disease awareness isn’t at the highest of levels, many aspects of this condition go unknown by the regular person. One such question we often get asked is whether someone with kidney disease can still live a normal life.

Is a Normal Life Still Possible?

The simple answer is yes. While being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease may seem like a devastating blow, the truth is that chronic kidney disease actually doesn’t have any symptoms until your kidneys are badly damaged. You may actually be more surprised to hear that one-in-nine Americans are actually living with some kind of kidney disease today! You’ll be able to live a normal life if you have kidney disease just as many millions of people are already doing. When you’ve accepted your condition and learned how to best take care of your health, your new normal will be just as fulfilling as your life was previously.

Coping with Kidney Disease

When it comes to learning how to best take care of your health with kidney disease, there are several things that you can do to achieve wellness:

  • Cut back on the sodium and the protein that you eat.
  • Limit your alcohol as well.
  • Don’t smoke or use tobacco.
  • Exercise often to keep your body strong.
  • Manage your health (blood pressure, weight, etc.).
  • Have regular checkups with your doctor.
  • Take any needed medications or home choice treatment options.
  • Stay positive!
