Because advanced age is a risk factor for CKD, simply being older can categorize many seniors as having stage 3 CKD. More than half of Americans age 70 and older have stage 3 CKD under the current classification system. However, most don’t have “proteinuria” (high levels of albumin in the urine), which is a real sign of kidney damage. For those with proteinuria, it is advised to stop taking drugs that might cause further kidney damage, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen, naproxen); some antibiotics (metformin, simvastatin, rosuvastatin); and thiazide diuretics. Because your kidneys are highly adaptable and able to compensate for lost function, signs and symptoms of disease may not appear until irreversible damage has occurred. If you have a medical condition that increases your risk of kidney disease, your doctor is likely to monitor your blood pressure and kidney function with urine and blood tests during regular office visits. For more information, please call or visit VILLAGE PHARMACY in the Colonial Shopping Center (781-334-3133) HINT: If you have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, it is important that you manage your elevated blood pressure and blood sugar.

WEEKLYNEWS.NET - 978-532-5880 7 Neglecting our bodies can place a heavy toll on not only our physical being, but our emotional life as well. Biological and biochemical modifications warn us with symptoms that are created by these metabolic and hormonal changes. Are you unable to sleep? Do you have anxiety or depression? Do you suffer from achy bones? Do you have digestive “issues”? Are you affected by personal or work related stress? Once our attention is focused on the warning signs the next step is contemplating what we can do to alter this state of congestion and confusion between the body and mind. Begin by changing dysfunctional habits. These changes, in conjunction with yoga specifically due to its healing potential, can help. How? Well, during yoga the asanas/postures paired with pranayama/breathing activates our parasympathetic nervous system, counteracting stress. You can also incorporate some detoxification thru proper diet and nutrition. Do you remember the voices Senior Living Directory YOGA Listen to your body of your parents when you were a child - “stop and count to ten” or perhaps it was “take a deep breath”??? There is something to be said about executing these two simple tasks if you feel anger or stress. They both slow the mind long enough to give us an opportunity to think for a moment, allowing us to focus and as our body relaxes it releases healthy hormones that awaken your vital centers, your mind and body become one adjusting our thoughts helping us to react appropriately. To create inner harmony— Listen to your body!!!!!! Sharon Marrama, owner of Here Comes the Sun Yoga for Kids is a children’s yoga instructor at several local schools and studios. She holds a certificate in Teen Coaching and writes children’s books spreading sunshine along the way. $1300 Shore Village is conveniently located near area shops and restaurants, public transportation and beach.
