What does Crohn's disease result in?
MediGuard answeredThe walls of the intestine thicken because of inflammation and scar tissue. Surgery can help some patients. The most important factor is that you find a specialist that you are comfortable with. Every case is different and every patient is different, so make sure you have a doctor that is a specialist and one that you are comfortable with.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
Why is eating fresh foods important if I need to reduce my salt intake?
If you need to reduce your salt intake, buy fresh foods as often as possible. Typically, fresh fruits, vegetables and meats are low in sodium and healthier for your heart. Also, cooking from scratch can help you reduce your sodium intake while preventing you from eating prepared foods and frozen dinners. Although premade meals are an easier option if you have a busy schedule, the high salt content can make your blood pressure higher and produce more strain on your heart over the years.
How is kidney disease classified?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Kidney disease is classified as acute or chronic, and these conditions may lead to what is called end-stage renal disease.
Acute kidney diseases develop rapidly and send people to the hospital if they aren't already there. After treatment, people can fully heal from acute kidney diseases, though sometimes the damage is permanent.
Chronic kidney disease is a progressive condition where the kidneys gradually lose function over years, often without a person feeling anything different until kidney function is so low that it causes health problems. There aren't cures for chronic kidney diseases, but there are treatments that can slow their progression.
End-stage renal disease refers to when a person's kidneys have permanently failed and will never be able to filter blood efficiently enough to sustain life.
Only dialysis or a kidney transplant can keep a person with end-stage renal disease alive.
