These Everyday Habits May Damage Your Kidneys

Hi and welcome to thevival.Com. The National Kidney Foundation said that kidney disease kills more than 90,000 Americans each year. It’s more than breast cancer or prostate cancer. If we want to live long and healthy lives, we have to take care of our kidneys. Maybe you didn’t know but our daily habits could prevent us from doing this.

It is not too late to unlearn these habits. Simple changes to your diet, supplements, and sleep will prevent kidney disease in the future. New habits can also prevent other illnesses such as diabetes. For the sake of your kidneys, change these daily habits.

Stay tuned to see how your bathing habits could lead to kidney disease.

Use herbs instead of salt

Eating excessive amounts of salt upsets your blood balance, making it difficult for your kidneys to remove water. According to the 2018 research from the Journal of Clinical Hypertension, this could lead to kidney disease. Unfortunately, many Western diets tend to abuse salt.

The United States Department of Agriculture recommends that people limit their intake of salt to one teaspoon per day or 2,300 mg. It’s about a third less than most people consume. Be wary of high sodium levels in pre-cooked and processed foods as this is where kidney damage can sneak in.
