Using CBD To Relieve Kidney Disease

Kidney disease refers to a medical condition where a person has impaired kidney functions. In a person that is suffering from this disease, the kidney does not filter metabolic wastes, excess minerals, and fluids from the blood properly. Naturally, the kidney is responsible for cleaning the blood. It also produces hormones that strengthen the bones. Thus, a healthy kidney enables a person to have a healthy blood and strong bones. Kidney disease damages nephrons rendering the kidney unable to perform its functions.

Common causes of kidney disease include diabetes mellitus, toxic drugs, reduced supply of blood due to uncontrolled hypertension, and autoimmune diseases. Today, almost 14 percent of US citizens suffer from kidney disease. Fortunately, studies have shown that CBD can be used to relieve this condition.
