5 Daily Mistakes that harm our Kidneys

Dr. Amar Amale    04-11-2019 Consult

Kidneys flush out the toxins and other harmful products out from the body. If your kidney does not function well, then there is a risk of heart attack or a heart stroke. Here are five daily mistakes which might harm your kidneys in the worst way possible:

1. Too much consumption of salt
Food items that have too much salt have too much sodium amount as well. It leads to higher blood pressure and harms the kidneys. Thus, mix less salt and more herbs to your meal.

2. Excess consumption of processed food
Processed food contains sodium and phosphorus. Those who have a problem with their kidneys must not consume phosphorus. Thus, eat healthy.

3. Drinking less water
One must drink an adequate amount of water to maintain the health of the kidneys. If we do not drink water in a sufficient amount then the toxins do not flush out of the body. Drinking less water leads to the problem of kidney stones as well.

4. Smoking
Smoking not only harms the lungs but also the rest of the body. Those who smoke, have protein in their urine which increases the possibility of kidney problems.

5. Sitting for too long
Those who are in a desk job often spend their time sitting at a single place. Sitting in one place for very long affects the metabolism of the body and harms the kidney
