Research suggests, having a kidney problem is directly related to a brain disorder.
Kidneys are responsible for removing waste from the blood, balancing salt and minerals in the blood, and producing rennin, which helps manage blood pressure. Kidney damage can result in kidney disease, impairing and disrupting their duties. When damage gets severe, kidney disease can actually become fatal.
In the study, published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, researchers have found a link between kidney disease and brain disorders. It was previously known that stroke and dementia are common among kidney disease patients, but the reason behind this remained unclear.
Researchers gathered information from 2,645 participants and examined kidney function and blood flow to the brain. The findings revealed that kidney function was strongly linked to blood flow to the brain. Additionally, poor kidney function was linked to stroke and dementia in participants with hypoperfusion – decreased blood flow to the brain.
