Six common habits that seriously damage your kidneys
By Sandeep Godiyal

(DrEddyClinic News) Kidneys are not a part of the body that many people think about – until something goes wrong with them! But if a kidney infection or kidney stone develops, it quickly becomes apparent that these small organs located in the lower back are incredibly important for the health of the whole body.


Their main function is to detoxify the blood, removing waste products from it constantly and ensuring that these wastes are removed from the body during urination. Infections or stones can seriously impair kidney function and can lead to pain, water weight gain and other unpleasant symptoms. That is why taking care of the kidneys is so important. Unfortunately, there are many everyday habits that people practice and do not even think about that, over time, can seriously damage kidney health – and thus the health of the whole body.

Chronic dehydration

Chronic dehydration – in other words, going without enough water to drink day after day – is one of the worst things that people can do to their kidneys. This is because kidneys need plenty of water to cleanse them and remove impurities that can cause damage or infections. Pushing fluids, on the other hand, is one of the best ways to promote good kidney function.

Excessive salt consumption

Some sodium is okay – the body needs it in the same way it needs calcium or potassium. However, the American diet is especially incredibly high in sodium. This excessive sodium consumption raises blood pressure, and high blood pressure in turn can lead to kidney damage over time.

Delaying urination

It can be difficult, during a busy day, to stop and take time out to urinate. But people who delay the "call of nature" do so at their own risk: This delay can cause pressure, weaken the bladder, and increase the risk of infections and stones.

High sugar consumption

Sodium is not the only thing that is tough on the kidneys. Several studies have shown that those who have a high level of sugar consumption – and especially those who consume several sugary drinks like soda each day – are far more likely to have protein in their urine, a sign that the kidneys are being damaged.

A nutrient-poor diet

The American diet, with its reliance on processed and fast foods, is notoriously nutrient-poor. The problem with this is that many deficiencies in vitamins or minerals can cause damage to the kidneys and weaken the immune system, making kidney infections more likely.

Excessive meat consumption

Another problem with the American diet is that it is far too rich in meat – especially red meat. An extremely high animal protein diet forces the kidneys to work harder – and this over time can lead to kidney dysfunction and eventually to failure.

The great news is that all the risk factors mentioned above are modifiable: That is, people have control over them and can alter them to lead a lifestyle that will promote and support kidney health.
