Diagnosis and treatment of renal diseases in a timely manner are important. Assessing cardiovascular status (and risk factors such as smoking and lipid profile) is essential, because it has an important role in mortality. Also, due to the possibility of osteoporosis and its subsequent fractures, bone densitometry is important. If the glomerular filtration rate is less than 30 mL/min, and lower the patient should be referred to a nephrologist. The slogan of the world in 2015 on March 12, 2015, is to invite everyone to drink a glass of water and give one too to celebrate their kidneys. This is a symbolic gesture to remember that kidneys are vital organs and that they should be cared; it is a way to make people more conscious about their lifestyle choices.
