  • Sitting for long periods of time has now been linked to the
    development of kidney disease. Although researchers don’t
    know yet why or how sedentary time or physical activity
    directly impact kidney health, it is known that greater physical
    activity is associated with improved blood pressure and
    glucose metabolism, both important factors in kidney health.

  • Eating Too Much Meat 

    Animal protein generates high amounts of acid in the blood that can be harmful to the kidneys and cause acidosis – a condition in which kidneys cannot eliminate acid fast enough. Protein is needed for growth, upkeep and repair of all parts of the body but your diet should be well balanced with fruits and vegetables.

  • Eating Too Many Foods High in Sugar

    Sugar contributes to obesity which increases your risk of developing high blood pressure and diabetes, two of the leading causes of kidney disease. In addition to desserts, sugar is often added to foods and drinks that you may not consider “sweet.” Avoid condiments, breakfast cereals, and white bread which are all sneaky sources of processed sugar. Pay attention to the ingredients when buying packaged goods to avoid added sugar in your diet.
