How to Protect Kidney

Most people know how to protect their heart (eat less fat, exercise more), but do you know how to care for your kidneys? A diabetic patient of mine thought he was healthy until a kidney function test showed that his kidneys were only functioning at 40-percent capacity.
The kidneys’ job is to help remove various toxins (drugs and food wastes), and expel them through the urine. The kidneys are silent and efficient workers, but if they get sick, the whole body suffers.

10 best ways to protect your kidneys:

1. Limit your salt intake
2. Don’t load up on high-protein foods.
3. Keep your blood pressure at 130/80 or lower.
4. Keep your blood sugar below 120 mg/dl .
5. Drink eight glasses of water a day.
6. Watch your intake of pain relievers and other drugs.
7. Be careful with tests and procedures using contrast dyes.
8. Don’t take too much vitamin C.
9. Don’t rely on food supplements to protect your kidneys.
10. Get a kidney check-up.
