Exercise and bone health: what CKD patients should know Hot Topics in Kidney Health

    • Health & Fitness

Keeping your body and bones strong are important when you have kidney disease. Do you know what types of exercise are good for kidney patients? What about for transplant recipients or people on dialysis? In this episode, we sat down with experts to discuss the benefits and recommendations of managing an exercise routine.
On this episode, we spoke with: 
Brittany Glazar
 Brittany has been a Clinical Exercise Physiologist at the University of Delaware for 3 years working in their Exercise and Functional Training Lab. Each day she gets the chance to work with individuals with all stages of CKD including transplant, as well as apparently healthy individuals and those with Parkinson’s disease.
 
Wilson Du
Wilson is a kidney transplant recipient from Alameda, California.  Prior to receiving his transplant in 03/2022, he was on hemodialysis for 5.5 years.  During his time on dialysis, he managed to lose over 130lbs, completed various physical competitions (10K, half marathons, triathlons), and also rode his bike 500+ miles down the coast of California.  He has now dedicated his life to helping other patients live their best life through his gym in California.  He is known as the Renal Warrior.
