Time for your New Year checkup

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.
