Modern lifestyle and obesity can affect the functioning of Kidneys, as obesity leads to changes in the microstructure of kidneys, leading to protein leakage and gradually leading to kidney failure.
In a statement issued on the eve of World Kidney Day on Wednesday, Dr. Chakravarthy said in individuals affected by obesity, the kidneys have to work harder, filtering more blood than normal (hyper filtration) to meet the metabolic demands of the increased body weight.
"Kidney-related disease kills more people each year than breast cancer, prostate cancer and even road accidents but up to 90 per cent of kidney function can be lost before you feel sick", said Dr Spicer.

Screening is important, she said, because by the time a person begins to show symptoms of kidney disease, the damage is done. In some cases, long-term conditions which put a strain on the kidneys, such as poorly controlled blood pressure and diabetes, are the root cause.
Exercise regularly, eat healthy and keep your weight under control to keep a check on obesity, which is the majorly responsible for kidney disease, says a health expect, while spreading awareness on World Kidney day.
It's estimated that approximately three million people across the United Kingdom have kidney disease, though awareness and understanding of the disease remains low. African Americans are 3 ½ times more likely, and Hispanics 1 ½ times more likely, to experience kidney failure. Improvements in this realm could provide an avenue to restoring function within a failing kidney.
"It is important to note that sometimes a UTI can be a sign of something underlying that can cause kidney damage, such as kidney stones", Dr Tomson added. These stages are determined by the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of the kidneys - which essentially is a measure of how quickly the kidneys filter waste products out of the blood.
Any type of kidney disease can reduce the efficiency of this filtration process.
This may also help prevent diabetes and other conditions associated with Chronic Kidney Disease.
"As a 67-year-old organization, we're trying to refresh our approach to reach a younger demographic which doesn't realize how unsafe kidney disease can be", added Longino.
