According to media reports, researchers from Drexel University’s College of Medicine and Dornsife School of Public Health in Philadelphia published their findings in the journal ‘Obesity’.

Previous studies have found a link between weight gain and risk of chronic kidney disease, but this study looked at the relationship between physical fitness and risk of chronic kidney disease in obese people without diabetes or kidney disease, the study said. Shows the connection.

More than 40 percent of adults have obesity, which is a risk factor for kidney disease, said the study’s lead author, Dr. Meera Ann.
