Protect Your Kidneys – World Kidney Day Exclusive

World Kidney Day is observed every year on March 9th to create awareness of kidney diseases, which affect millions of people worldwide, including children who are also at risk. It is imperative to create awareness and spread education about this debilitating disease to encourage early detection and a healthy lifestyle to help prevent kidney damage, including acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Kidney diseases are silent killers. Chronic kidney disease is a progressive loss of kidney function over a period of months or years. Most people have no symptoms until CKD becomes quite advanced. A person can lose up to 90% of kidney function before experiencing any clear symptoms.

You may be at risk if you:
• Have high blood pressure
• Have diabetes
• Have a family history of kidney disease
• Are overweight
• Are a smoker
• Are over 50 years of age

Take care of your kidneys naturally-
There are several simple ways to reduce the risk of kidney disease, prevent complications in future and improve the quality of life.

• Start the day with a glass of water; water helps one stay hydrated and flushes out waste, lowering the chance of developing kidney stones and infections.

• Minimize spice intake; excess sodium and potassium in foods usually comes from seasonings and pickles.

• Maintain a healthy weight; check your BMI regularly. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise.

• Limit salt intake; too much salt (sodium) may lead to high blood pressure, affecting kidney function.

• Control cholesterol — high cholesterol, especially in diabetics, increases the risks of kidney disease, heart disease and stroke.

• Limit intake of alcohol and tobacco (smoking or chewing) as they increase the risk of developing high blood pressure, kidney disease and other health problems.

• Don’t resist the urge to urinate. Filtration of blood is a key function of the kidneys. After filtration, the waste and water is stored in the urinary bladder and needs to be excreted.

• Drink healthy beverages; fruit juice or coconut water helps keep the kidneys healthy.

• Avoid too much coffee and tea as they contain caffeine which reduces the amount of fluids in the body.

Manage diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Often kidney disease results from conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure.

Tips to Minimize Risk of Kidney Stones- 
• Drink 2 litres of water daily; it helps dilute the substances in urine that lead to stones.
• Drink citrus beverages like lemon and orange juice which help block stone formation.
• Limit animal protein such as red meat, poultry, eggs and seafood, which boosts the level of uric acid and could lead to kidney stones.
• Limit sugar intake as it upsets the calcium and magnesium absorption in the body.
