1. Lack of Water

The kidney’s primary function is detoxification and this is done with the help of water. With insufficient water there is a build-up of toxins in the body, which can affect other functions.

2. Excess Salt

 Salt increases blood pressure which in turn exerts a lot of pressure on your kidneys. Restrict your daily salt intake to around 5 grams a day, which is ideal.

3. Restraining Urination

Controlling yourself from urinating can increase urine pressure and lead to kidney stones. So be sure to relieve yourself without any delay.

4. Excess Sugar

High sugar foods increase the protein content in your system which in turn exerts pressure on your kidneys. Protein amounts in one’s urine is a valid way to check kidney functioning.

5. Excess Animal Protein

Red meat in particular increases the metabolic load on your body, especially the kidneys. Regular consumption of red meat can cause dysfunction or failure.

6. Lack of Sleep

Sleep deprivation can lead to several health problems including kidney disease. Your body repairs damaged kidney tissue while you sleep, so better sleep means better kidneys.

7. Excess Caffeine

High amounts of caffeine raises blood pressure and exercises the kidneys in excess. Regular consumption of caffeine can cause kidney damage.

8. Painkillers 

They have become a regular in our day to day lives and are used for almost any sort of pain. These pills naturally deteriorate the kidney and liver.

9. Alcohol Consumption

This legal toxin harshly exercises the kidney and liver so don’t go overboard.
