1. Hydrate, but don’t overhydrate
Although it’s definitely a smart idea to drink lots of water, drinking more than the average 4 or 6 glasses a day is obviously not going to make your kidneys do their job any better.
2. Healthy Food
3. Regular Exercise
Regular physical exercise helps combat obesity and hypertension.
4. Quit Smoking
Smoking can destroy blood vessels, which restricts blood flow to the kidneys. If the kidneys do not have enough blood supply, they cannot function at optimum levels.
5. Be careful with Supplements
Excessive quantities of some vitamin supplements and herbal extracts can be hazardous to your kidneys.
6. Be cautious about over-the-counter medications
Popular non-prescription drugs such as naproxen (NSAIDs) or ibuprofen can damage the kidneys if taken too frequently for an extended period of time.
