The Kieler* Nierenwoche is the largest event of it's kind in Germany.
*Kiel, Capital Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
The „Kieler Nierenwoche“ gives information about the kidneys and the related diseases. The purpose is to attract the attention to the different functions of the kidneys.
Which functions do the kidneys have?
The kidneys filter 1800 Liters of blood every day! The kidneys have, besides the filtering of the body, a lot of other functions like blood pressure and metabolism.
The weak point is that you can have a problem for years, before the symptoms of the illness occur. Therefore it is important to give the kidneys some attention!
The theme of 2015 is: „Sie sollten Ihre Werte kennen“
