Kidney disease has been on the rise in Kenya. In this article, I'll discuss some of the most common habits that people have that harm their kidneys. The goal is to educate you so that you can avoid these things or at the very least reduce your chances of developing kidney complications.
You should urinate as soon as you feel the urge. This is because when urine stays in the bladder for a long time, pathogens that cause disease multiply and infect the urinary tract. It can lead to kidney infections later on.
Excessive sitting can increase a person's chances of developing a kidney complication by 30%. Make sure you take frequent breaks to walk around. If you are unable to exercise throughout the week, set aside two days for working out. It could happen at work or in your business.
Exercising too much can lead to health problems. Overworking muscles can cause them to break and dead cells from these areas to enter the bloodstream. This can cause kidney infections and other serious health problems, such as kidney failure. Exercising is beneficial, but going too far can be dangerous for your body.
If you take too many pain relievers, your blood flow to your kidneys is reduced. The kidneys do not function optimally when blood flow is insufficient. If you make this a habit, your kidneys may develop complications over time. You need to cut back on over-the-counter medicines and painkillers.
The majority of kidney stones are caused by not drinking enough water. Eating too much meat causes the body to produce a lot of acid during digestion. Diet soda can also cause kidney damage if you eat too many sugarsweetened sodas and snacks. If you don't get enough sleep, your kidneys may be damaged over time. If you get a common infection it is important to take measures that help your body to heal faster. If the infections stay for too long in your body you risk damaging your kidneys and kidney function.
