Tips to Keep Your Kidneys Healthy 

Hello friends today I am talking about

 

Tips to keep your kidney healthy now

 

there are several ways to reduce the 


risk of developing kidney disease so 


following other tips to look after the


health of your kidneys the first and the


most important tip would be to drink


plenty of water one should drink at


least 10 to 12 glasses of water every


day which means around two and a half to


three liters of fluid in 24 hours


especially warm water because it is more


helpful for the kidneys the water helps


to flush out various toxins salt and


other uremic products from the body and


maintains the homeostasis and correct


balance of the body the next step would


be to have a salt restricted diet or


keep a low sodium diet all around one


should avoid intake of packaged or


restaurant products do not add any extra


salt to your diet try to keep your salt


intake in 24 hours - less than 5 grams


in a day taking excessive salt adds to


the risk or development of hypertension


hypertension related kidney disorders


and also increases the risk of


regression of various kidney diseases


the third tip would be to maintain an


appropriate body weight target a BMI of


less than 24 especially in the case of


Indians if you have an excessive body


weight or are obese the load that has to


be filtered by the kidney increases and


can cause kidney damage in the future


try to get your blood cholesterol levels


checked and try to keep them under check


because if the cholesterol de position


happens in renal arteries it will


further, damage to the kidneys and leads to


progression of kidney disease the next


step would be to monitor your sugar


levels and try to keep them under


optimum levels by optimum levels I mean


target and hba1c of less than 6 a


fasting blood sugar level of less than


100 and a postprandial or towards post


meal blood sugar levels of less than 200


damage is especially common in diabetics


it starts with proteinuria or protein


leakage which in turn gets converted to


rise in the serum creatinine levels and


rapidly increases the progression of


diabetic related kidney disorders so my


advice is avoid any sweet products


avoid addition of any sugar to your


products and if you are a diabetic meet


a physician take your drugs the oral


hypoglycemic agents which he has


prescribed or insulin and check them


regularly and keep and maintain it to


the target levels as discussed before


the next step would be to monitor your


blood pressures and keep them under


control now hypertension is both the


victim and villain in kidney disorders


so if you have high blood pressures it


can cause kidney diseases can lead to


its rapid progression the truth is if we


think about it the other way around that


you have chronic kidney disease then it


can also lead to hypertension so


restrict salt in your diet keep a


healthy lifestyle balanced your


lifestyle in a way that your blood


pressure is under control if you are a


hypertensive


your physician take the tablets that he


has prescribed and regularly monitor


your blood pressures the target blood


pressures would be less than 120 by 80


coming to the next step get your kidney


function tests urinalysis and


imaging investigations of the kidney


which includes an ultrasound


KUB done regularly if you are a


high-risk patient which include


diabetics hypertensives


patients of coronary artery disease


metabolic bone disease obesity than one


should get themselves tested even more


often if you have a family history of


these diseases again you are at high


risk or you have a family history of


kidney diseases then you are at high


risk get these tests done if there is


any abnormality meet a nephrologist and


prevent the further progression of


kidney disorders the next step would be


to quit smoking another one of the most


preventable modifiable risk factor would


be smoking


everyone knows smoking increases the


propensity of coronary artery disease


strokes hypertension worsens diabetes


but few people know that even smoking


one cigarette per day actually leads to


progression of kidney disorders so if


you are a smoker and you have a kidney


disease it will many-fold increase the


risk of progression so my advice is


strictly avoid smoking it is a


quintessential requirement for those


people who have kidney diseases maintain


an active and balanced lifestyle I would


suggest that do a moderate exercise of


around 45 minutes per day five out of


seven days in a week by moderate


exercise I mean jogging cycling swimming


various kind of racket games do not


follow any sedentary lifestyle if you


have a sedentary lifestyle try to move


around in your office take a stroll


after having your line


because all these increases the chances


of obesity and metabolic syndrome which


further, predisposes to kidney disorders


one of the most important tips that I


want to give you is avoiding the


unnecessary use of any painkillers or


any alternative medications we know that


most of the people in case of even a


small headache go to a rounder of the


corner shops take various painkillers


like bluefin combi frenum indomethacin


all these painkillers are not good for


the kidney boron is used a lot by


patients nowadays these painkillers have


been implicated in the progression of


chronic kidney disease especially


chronic to blow interstitial disorders


so my advice to you is please avoid them


also, if you've taken these painkillers


get your free kidney function tests and


urinalysis done relatively kidney


safe painkillers would be paracetamol


tramadol or ultra set last but not the


least balanced your lifestyle take a


restful night's sleep of around eight


 hours this is extremely important to


 keep you healthy thank you
