Chronic Kidney Disease Management: How I use a body composition scale to manage my CKD


Episode 108: Chronic Kidney Disease Management: How I use a body composition scale to manage my CKD. Managing Chronic Kidney Disease doesn't just happen at your doctor's office - it starts at home. I discuss why and how I use a Withings Body+ body composition Wi-Fi scale at home to manage my Chronic Kidney Disease and how it played an important role in my kidney health.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve talked about weight management and your health. From diet, to exercise, to keeping your blood pressure under control. Many of you noticed I mention my WIFI scale and how it has played an important role in managing my Chronic Kidney Disease, especially with COVID and virtual doctor visits. After being diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease, I wanted to have everything I could to help me beat kidney disease - which is why I purchase a Withings Body+ body composition Wi-Fi scale.

The Withings Body+ Wi-Fi smart scale is not your average scale, it is a very smart and high-tech scale. It does a whole lot more than tell you how much you weight!
• 1st: It offers a full-body composition analysis. In addition to weight & BMI (Body Mass Index), it tracks full body composition over time – we’re talking about total body fat, water percentage, muscle mass & bone mass.
• It syncs this data automatically via WIFI and Bluetooth with the Health Mate app. And WIFI means you don’t need your phone with you.
• The Health Mate app is very easy to use – all your data appears there almost instantly. You can set goals, view the trends of all the different measurements, and it has built-in tips to give you extra motivation. The Health Mate app also syncs automatically with my Apple Health app which gives me a holistic view of my health.
• Body+ is highly accurate in all its measurements. Withings created and patented a unique body position detector called Position Control Technology to make sure of that.
• Now once you have all this data in the Health Mate app – you can share a health report with your doctor instantly through the Health Mate app.
