Kieser Exercise Treatments for Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) involves the gradual decline of kidney function over time and is estimated to effect over 10% of Australian adults. Proper kidney function is essential because they assist in the regulation of blood pressure and bone mineral density as well as the removal of waste and toxins from the body. 

There are multiple stages of Chronic Kidney Disease so it's important to keep informed about your prevention and treatment options. 

Are you at risk of Chroinic Kidney Disease? 

The risk of chronic kidney disease is influenced by a number of factors, including age (60+), diabetes, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, obesity and smoking. The good news is that most of these risk factors are modifiable with a Kieser Method fitness plan which means you can take steps now to reduce your risk of developing chronic kidney disease.

Getting started at Kieser to reduce the risks of CKD, or exercise as a CKD treatment is really easy. Find a Kieser fitness centre near you.

Exercise as treatment 

The focus of treatment for chronic kidney disease is to maximise kidney and heart function and to control the risk factors mentioned above. To achieve this an Exercise Physiologist may use a combination of aerobic and resistance exercise. 

Cardiovascular complications are much more prevalent among chronic kidney disease populations which is why exercises that challenge your cardiovascular system i.e walking, swimming, cycling are an essential component of chronic kidney disease management. 

The 8th of March is World Kidney Day, which is a global awareness campaign aimed at raising awareness of the importance of our kidneys. If you or someone you know is at risk for developing chronic kidney disease, visit your Exercise Physiologist at Kieser today for a tailored exercise program.
