What resolutions did you make to/for yourself this year? Did it include improvement in your health? Well, let me take a second to pass along some information that was new to me until a short time ago.
Pay attention to your kidneys. If you are like me, you gave them (and my liver) a good workout over the holiday season. Some statistics coming from the Transplant Athlete tells us that as many 1 in 7 of us may have some sort of kidney disease. Two in three will have at least one abnormal test. Screening is a simple blood test that your doc can do during your annual health exam. You do get one don’t you?
If you are in the DC area, Jan 13 – 14th, you can get a free screening at the NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo.
I’ll put the soapbox away now.
