Kidney Center coimbatore - Sri Ramakrishna Hospital

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

Follow good eating habits to regulate blood pressure and weight. Trying to prevent high blood pressure and diabetes will help keep the kidneys in healthy shape.

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.

7. Screen your kidneys regularly

If you have diabetes, hypertension or heart disease, the doctor should monitor your kidney function as part of the regular treatment for these conditions.
