Climate Change May Contribute to Rising Rates of Chronic Kidney Disease

Climate change may be accelerating rates of chronic kidney disease by way of increased dehydration rates and incidences of heat-related difficulties. According to the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, this could become a major cause of poor kidney health in the future. As worldwide temperatures progressively rise, scientists have observed a pattern in which rural communities with higher median temperatures are displaying a greater risk of poor kidney health. Agricultural workers are at an even higher risk as well as, more vulnerable populations and those that primarily work outdoors.

Climate Change Chronic Kidney Disease

In order for outdoor workers and at-risk populations to better understand and potentially stave off the threat of climate-related CKD, the government and scientific community must work in unison to document the gravity of the situation and, if necessary, improve overall conditions for these at-risk workers. Although this could very easily spiral into an epidemic in the near future due to the expansive nature of global warming, there are some preventative tips that at-risk populations can avail themselves of. Chiefly, ensuring proper hydration is maintained at all times and a well-ventilated environment is provided, whether at work or home.


About Robert Galarowicz: 

Since early 2006, Robert Galarowicz has been teaching people on using a highly therapeutic kidney diet, and kidney safe supplements like herbal remedies, probiotics to avoid dialysis and live a better quality of life. It started when he was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) at 22. This led to dialysis and since 2004, he has been living with a kidney transplant. Robert’s burning passion about kidney disease led to him becoming a nutritionist and naturopath.
After spending years researching and studying about kidney disease, Robert used these discoveries personally and with hundreds of clients. The results were astounding and he created “The All Natural Kidney Health & Kidney Function Restoration Program.”For more information, please visit:
