9 Ways To Keep Your Kidneys Working Well

Chronic renal disease is mostly caused by hypertension. Cheap at-home blood pressure monitors are available in pharmacies and online.

Keep your blood pressure lower than 120/80 mmHg

Your kidneys are damaged by long-term high blood sugar levels caused by your body's inability to generate or use insulin.

Manage your diabetes

Aerobic exercise lowers blood pressure, improves heart health, and helps you lose weight. Walking, running, riding, and even housework are good exercise.

Stay active

Having a balanced diet that meets your body's nutritional demands without stressing your kidneys is crucial.

Eat a healthy diet

Water helps the kidneys excrete waste as urine. Health, age, gender, climate, and activity intensity affect how much water you require daily.

Drink enough fluids

Smoking destroys blood arteries, reduces blood flow, and raises heart attack, stroke, cancer, and other risks.

Don t smoke

Most people take prescription, over-the-counter, vitamin, and supplement medications. Take your diabetes and high blood pressure medications as indicated.

Mind your medicines

Chronic stress raises blood pressure, which destroys renal blood arteries and increases heart attack and stroke risk.

Manage stress

A regular kidney function test can assess your kidney's health and reduce or prevent further damage since CKD symptoms often develop later in the disease.
