  Health Tip: Maintain a Healthy Heart While on Dialysis

(HealthDay News) -- Heart disease is the leading cause of death in people with kidney failure, the National Kidney Foundation says.

If you need dialysis and also have heart issues, your heart treatment may be changed somewhat to accommodate your need for dialysis.

The Foundation suggests these tips to protect your heart:

  • Eat a heart-healthy diet
  • Get regular exercise.
  • Keep your blood pressure and cholesterol levels in check.
  • If you have diabetes, keep your blood sugar under control.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Reduce stress.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
