People with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) as well as Diabetes can experience chronic inflammation which is directly linked to Cardiovascular (heart) Disease, obesity, progression or worsening of Type II Diabetes, fatigue, fever, swollen joints, loss of appetite, and muscle stiffness. It was reported that the well known Writer, Actor, Director Harold Ramis (Creator of Ghost Busters), died on Monday February 24th, 2014 from chronic inflammation. Although, toxin build up, infection, gum disease and a Transplanted Kidney that no longer works all lead to inflammation, people with CKD or Diabetes can still reduce the dangers of this disorder by understanding causes and utilizing anti-inflammatory techniques.
BetterDigestion.org identified the top 5 causes of chronic inflammation and detailed specific foods to eat and those to avoid. Among them were processed foods, sugar and foods high in saturated fat which all contribute to inflammation. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and probiotics, however, calm the digestive system and reduce inflammation. Alkaline foods like organic greens and vegetables also reduce inflammation.
