Chronic kidney failure is defined by the gradual loss of kidney function. The seriousness of the disease is highlighted by the critical role played by the kidneys in ridding the body of toxic wastes and excess fluids in the blood by excreting them in urine. The kidneys also help balance the body’s electrolyte levels, control blood pressure, and stimulate the production of red blood cells.
All children are an inherent gift. Nevertheless, raising a child is a guaranteed challenge. For parents with children living with autism, the challenges can be great and often overwhelming. Although the challenges will remain, there are a few straightforward steps that can make raising a child with autism surmountable. These include finding the right team of professionals, learning about the disorder, seeking and interacting with other families affected by autism, and taking time out for personal needs aside from parenting.
The winter season brings with it many joys: holiday parties, family reunions, presents, and cold weather activities like sledding and snowman building. For people living with diabetes, however, the winter also presents challenges: changes in blood sugar and circulation due to the cold, changes in activity level and diet, and also more stress.
The holiday season is a joyful time of year, especially for children eagerly anticipating special treats like sweets and toys. For parents of children with food allergies, however, it can also be an anxious time. Those same treats that kids look forward to can be life-threatening dangers to children with food allergies. The threat may seem obscure to some who don’t have kids with food allergies. In fact, according to the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN), food allergies affect 6 million children in the U.S., a full 8 percent of the population. This means that food allergies should be on everyone’s mind when preparing food for holiday gatherings. With proper preparation and raised awareness, the holidays can be less worrisome for parents and safer for children.
