Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a condition where less than 10 per cent of people with the disease are aware they have the condition. The progressive nature of CKD and various means of management require different considerations for the exercise prescription, for both safety and long-term adherence.
This professional development will explore the role of exercise and the renal system in both healthy and diseased states. Given that diabetes and high blood pressure are two of the most common causes of chronic kidney disease, these co-morbidities will be of great focus in the exercise prescription for this population.
The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 16 August 2016.
