10 habits that can seriously damage your kidneys

A kidney problem is commonly the result of a constant process, which occurs over many years often due to a poor lifestyle or inadequate control of certain chronic diseases, such as diabetes. In this article, we present the 10 most common habits that can damage your kidneys.

According to an editorial published by the British Medical Journal in 2006, the annual incidence of kidney disease is more than 100 per million inhabitants in the United Kingdom. 

What are the functions of the kidneys in the body?

Secretory function: in the development of urine, the kidneys filter your blood, and eliminate toxins.

Regulatory function of water in the body: In case of significant loss of water, the amount of urine decreases to regulate the amount needed.

PH control function: The acidity or alkalinity of the internal environment of the human body is controlled by the kidneys.

They stimulate the production of red blood cells.

They are needed for the production of vitamin D, which is the key to bone formation and growth.

What are the habits that can damage your kidneys?

Do not drink enough water
Hydration is essential for the kidneys to properly remove toxins from your body. "This is one of the 9 things everyone should do to maintain good kidney health," according to the National Kidney Foundation.

Excessive consumption of alcohol
When you consume a lot of alcohol, your kidneys are under enormous pressure. In addition, it can similarly cause dehydration of your organs and hinder their performance.

High doses of drugs
It is important to respect the prescribed dose of medication. Some medicines can cause kidney damage if they are not taken properly.

Smoking narrows the blood vessels of the kidneys and causes arteriosclerosis in the renal arteries.

Excessive salt intake
The recommended maximum daily salt dose is 2300 mg. When this dose is exceeded, salt begins to accumulate in the kidneys causing them to malfunction as well as other serious problems, such as high blood pressure.

Do not get enough sleep
If you do not get enough sleep or the quality of your sleep is bad, it could block your arteries, increase your heart rate and severely damage your kidneys. It is necessary to sleep well 7 to 8 hours every day.

Excess caffeine
Drinking too much caffeine in the long term leads to chronic renal failure, as it increases blood pressure, and could even form kidney stones.

Deficiency in minerals and vitamins
Vitamin B6 and D deficiency increases the risk of kidney damage. It is necessary to adopt healthy and varied eating habits; to keep your body healthy.

An excess of protein
It is necessary to balance your protein intake, to protect your kidneys from kidney problems. In fact, eating a lot of red meats that are high in protein generates more waste to eliminate, which causes the kidneys to make more efforts to get there. And in the long term, the kidneys get tired and lesions can be caused.

To restrain from urinating
If you resist the urge to urinate for a long time, the kidneys retain the toxins that should be expelled. And this could lead to more serious conditions: such as kidney stones, incontinence and other types of kidney failure.

These are the foods you should avoid if you have kidney failure:
  • Lentils
  • Cereals with bran
  • Whole grains, rich in phosphorus
  • Oatmeal
  • Nuts
  • Poultry
  • Red meat
  • Potatoes
  • bananas
  • oranges

It is necessary to note that the habits that you will adopt to take care of your kidneys, will also benefit your well-being and your general health.
