Get a customized Diet Plan from a registered dietitian nutritionist to Prevent Kidney Disease.
Practice these steps to stay away from kidney disease:
- Maintain balanced blood sugar levels. Once diagnosed with pre-diabetes, diabetes or metabolic syndrome, control your blood sugar levels as instructed by your physician.
- Keep your blood pressure levels under control. One in three adults has blood pressure, but most of them don’t take steps to control it. Maintain sodium intake levels at less than 2,300 milligrams and people over 51 are requested to reduce the intake to 1,500 milligrams. It is necessary to check your blood pressure levels on your every visit to the doctor, or at least once a year.
- Involve physical exercise in your daily schedule. Exercise improves blood flow through the body, improves muscle function, lowers blood pressure, helps to maintain blood sugar levels and helps to stay at a healthy weight, all of which are helpful for your kidneys.
- Consume a well-balanced diet. Eat nutrient-dense foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products, lean meat and poultry, seafood, eggs, beans and peas, and nuts and seeds.
- Never take self-medication. Always take medicines for pain, only after your doctor or healthcare provider instructs you.
A registered dietitian nutritionist can devise a healthy eating diet plan and exercise schedule that fits your requirements and this would automatically reduce your risk for kidney disease.
