How prevent kidney disease

Even when we have said that there is no way to give us whether we have or not a kidney disease, if we can try to avoid it.

Here some guidelines…

  • check labels of over-the-counter, as they can cause this kind problems when deliberately consumed and prolonged (naproxen sodium, paracetamol and aspirin)
  • if there are chronic conditions that are being poorly controlled like diabetes or hypertension, this can also be a risk for kidney disease.
  • a healthy lifestyle can greatly prevent that kidney disease presents in life.

So, now you know it, fluid intake is vital to prevent the kidneys lose their functionality and therefore we will avoid that malfunction problems can appear sometime.

On the other hand, having a healthy lifestyle can prevent all kinds of diseases including chronic and more common as diabetes or hypertension.

These diseases common chronic may be the door for a chronic kidney disease if they are not treated well.

Kidney diseases are treatable and even preventable, so we must not forget that we are, in a high percentage responsible of suffering this kind of conditions.

Depending on the type of kidney disease, it may or may not be reversible, but we believe the most important thing is not to get the condition in the first place.

A healthy body, with excellent ability and good immune system reduces the percentage not only of having kidney disease, but almost any other type of common diseases, we need to be more responsible with our own lives.
