Class Experience

1) Structure of kidney, ureters, bladder, urethra
2) The many functions of the kidney (urine, blood pressure, bone, blood cells)
2) The importance of urine
3) How we form and excrete urine
5) How we can keep our kidneys healthy
As a family doctor when your patient has kidney disease you have to help them understand their long list of medications! There is nothing as enlightening as seeing this and having to support a patient through it! I therefore always emphasise the importance of a preventative approach with the kidneys. It is better to keep your kidneys healthy than to have to treat them later. It is with this mission that I created this class. I believe that if children can understand the many functions of the kidney they can be encouraged to lead a healthy lifestyle that would promote good kidney health.
