With sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy dietary habits of the growing population, kidneys tend to be the organs that are most affected primarily. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and acute kidney injury are on the rise worldwide. CKD affects as many as 10-15% of the world’s population and is associated with accelerated aging and severe cardiovascular complications. Inadequate hydration, heat stress due to global warming, a sedentary lifestyle and overuse of protein pump inhibitors can contribute to this epidemic.
