Kidneys: The Super Filters

Kidney disease accounts for 26 million chronic kidney disease (CKD) adult cases, in the United States alone. People suffering from diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and those who are older than 60 years old are more prone to this dilapidating disease. A family history of kidney disease can also put you at risk. Suffering from other ailments like Obesity, autoimmune diseases, and urinary tract infections also enhance your risk of developing kidney disease.

Apart from maintaining your weight, regularly monitoring your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose level, and exercising regularly, taking the effort to change to healthy dietary habits would improve your chances to stave off renal problems. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and low in salt or oxalate-rich food, can help prevent abnormal mineral build up. Additionally, drinking lots of water throughout the day, especially if you exercise frequently, is important for kidney health.
