06 fatal habits to your kidneys

Your kidneys are one of the most important organs in your body, they deserve a little love.

Damage or the steady decline of your kidneys can often go unnoticed for years because your kidneys can function with only 20% capacity.

It is for this reason often called kidney disease "silent disease."

  This is why it is so important to take care of them before it's too late.
1. Do not drink enough water The most important function of your kidneys is to filter the blood and remove toxins and waste.

When you do not drink enough water during the day, toxins and wastes begin to build up and can cause serious damage to your body.

2. Too much salt in the diet Your body needs sodium or salt to function properly.

However, most people consume too much salt can raise blood pressure and put a lot of pressure on the kidneys. Do not consume more than five grams of salt per day.

3. Often delay the call of nature Most people ignore the need to go because they are too busy or want to avoid public restrooms.

Retain urine on a regular basis increases the pressure of the urine and may cause kidney failure, kidney stones, and incontinence.

4. Get rid of the habit of sugar Scientific studies show that people who consume two or more sugary drinks a day are more likely to have protein in their urine.
Have protein in the urine is an early sign that your kidneys are not working properly.

5. Deficiencies in vitamins and minerals Have a healthy and balanced diet with fruits and vegetables is important for your overall health and good renal function.
Many deficiencies can increase the risk of kidney stones or kidney failure.
 Vitamin B6 and magnesium, for example, are very important to reduce the risk of kidney stones.

6. Too much animal protein-consumption of protein, especially red meat, increases the metabolic load on your kidneys.
So more protein in your diet means that your kidneys have to work harder and this can lead to kidney damage or malfunction over time.
