How to Keep Your Kidneys Healthy

High blood pressure, diabetes or a case history of renal failure put one in three Americans at an increased risk of developing renal disorder . But albeit you don’t have any of these risk categories, it’s important to require care of those critically important organs.

There are several things you can do to keep your kidneys as healthy as possible at every stage of life:

  1. Hydrate, but don’t overdo it. “Contrary to popular belief, no studies have been Shown over-hydration as an efficient practice in enhancing kidney function,” says nephrologist James Simon, MD. So, while it’s always an honest idea to drink enough water, drinking overthe standard four to 6 glasses each day probably won’t help your kidneys do their job any better.
