A generation of children raised on sugary, salty and fatty snacks might now be paying the price in the form of kidney disease. Dr. Michael Omidi discusses a report that found as many as one-fifth of obese children could be on the verge of kidney failure. Childhood obesity is ravaging our kids; they are more vulnerable to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, gastro esophageal reflux disease and sleep apnea. Moreover, they are more prone to behavioral problems, anxiety and depression than their healthy-weight peers. With all of these serious health concerns, there is now one more that, if left unaddressed, might not be correctable with weight loss – kidney disease. http://www.dr-michael-omidi.com
