Exercising 'improves kidney disease sufferers' health'

  • Comment

Regular exercise improves the health of patients with long-term kidney disease, according to a Cochrane review by Swedish researchers.

They reviewed 45 studies involving 1,863 patients.

Those who performed supervised, high intensity, cardiovascular training for four to six months had significantly improved aerobic capacity.

Three months of regular, high intensity resistance training or yoga, whether supervised or not, increased muscular strength and, when supervised, the resistance training also increased walking capacity.
