Abstract

Obesity is a growing worldwide epidemic. It is one of the strongest risk factors for new-onset chronic kidney disease, and also for kidney stones and kidney cancer. This article is an accompaniment to World Kidney Day on 9 March 2017 to promote education on the harmful consequences of obesity and its association with kidney disease, advocating healthy lifestyle and health policy measures that make preventative behaviours an affordable option.
