Don’t drop your meds all at once
When you are sick and the doctor sends you medicine for several weeks, you start taking it and when you start to feel better, you automatically stop it. This is very bad because in addition to not healing well, you are damaging your kidneys. Especially if we talk about medicines for blood pressure or pain. Kidneys love routines and sudden changes don’t go well.
Be careful with supplements
Many people take vitamin supplements on a day-to-day basis without even needing them. Theirs is to take them if you really have a deficiency of any vitamin or mineral, since taking too much of certain things is also harmful to health. Extremes are never good even if you think what you take is going to benefit you. For example, taking vitamin C in excess will make your kidneys have to work much more than necessary since the remains of vitamin C are eliminated from the body in the urine.
Don’t stop exercising
Exercising is not only good for the body but also for the mind. Playing sports makes you sleep better, relax and secrete dopamine, the hormone of happiness, in addition to the innumerable physical benefits that sport has. One of those physical benefits is that it helps you keep your blood pressure at healthy levels, which helps reduce your risk of kidney disease. It is not necessary to kill yourself to exercise, walking or running for half an hour or an hour a day is enough.
