Kidney Health Tips

Your kidney is one of the essential parts of your excretory system. These bean-shaped organs help filter out waste, including excess water and other impurities from the body. However, you can face several kidney-related problems such as kidney stones, blood clots, infection or inflammation and ultimately kidney failure due to several factors.  

Maintaining kidney health is essential as it has a bearing on your overall health and well-being. It is because when your kidneys function well, your body will be able to expel waste properly, and thereby produce healthy hormones.

To ensure that your kidneys function well, you may follow some of these simple tips:

 

Control Your Blood Sugar Levels

People suffering from a condition of high blood sugar levels, or diabetes, have a chance of developing kidney damage. It is because, in such a situation, your body’s cells are unable to use the glucose or sugar present in your blood, forcing your kidneys to work harder to filter blood. Due to overexertion, your kidney functioning may get severely affected, leading to life-threatening damage.

 

Avoid OTC Medicines

Many of you have a habit of taking over the counter medicines when you suffer from any minor health problem such as seasonal flu or cough, or any aches. However, such medication can cause damage to your kidneys. Therefore, it is vital that when facing any minor problem, you should always consult your doctor instead of just taking any readily available medicine.

 

Monitor Blood Pressure Regularly

Since high blood pressure also increases your risk of facing kidney damage, it is vital to ensure that it always remains within the normal range. So, if you experience high blood pressure frequently, then you should monitor it regularly to make sure that you can take preventive measures well in advance. This will keep you safe against suffering any kidney damage.

 

Drink Plenty of Fluids

There’s no drink like water, for it is a solution to about half the number of health problems that exist. It is because when your body is well-hydrated, you can clear sodium and other toxins from your kidneys also. This lowers your risk of chronic kidney disease. While consumption of water differs from person to person, but on average, a person should aim to drink at least 1.5 to litres of water in a day. Taking care of your water consumption will keep your kidneys healthy, along with having many other benefits on your body.

 

Exercise Regularly

Lack of physical exercise is a modifiable risk factor that has a bearing on the development of Chronic Kidney Disorder (CKD). Therefore, if you want to minimize your risk of facing any kidney-related disorder, you must exercise to improve your metabolism, as well as your blood pressure and insulin resistance. This will help ensure healthy renal functioning as well as lower CVD risk.

 

Monitor Your Weight

Being obese makes you more prone to many health problems like diabetes and heart disease. As a result of this, you will also be vulnerable to suffering from kidney damage, too, in the long run. Therefore, to stay clear of kidney problems of all kinds, you must make sure that you are not overweight. Towards this, you should first monitor your weight regularly, along with incorporating healthy habits like consuming a balanced diet and avoiding smoking.

 

So, if you want to enjoy good kidney health, you should apply all these tips in your life. Proper kidney health will also contribute to your overall well-being.
