Importance of physical exercise for kidney patients with CKD.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) represents a loss of quality of life for the patient, since it produces a progressive decrease in their autonomy and functional capacity, among other things.

Kidney patients often tend to lead a more sedentary lifestyle and end up losing much of their muscle mass. In addition, chronic kidney disease usually triggers musculoskeletal pathologies such as sarcopenia and renal osteodystrophy.

To combat the development of this type of disease, as well as the deterioration of the patient’s muscle mass, professionals recommend maintaining a weekly physical activity routine for patients with chronic kidney disease.
