Kidney is an important organ with excretion, metabolism and endocrine function in human body. It can regulate the concentration of electrolytes and maintain the balance of water and acid-base. However, many dietary habits may damage the kidney and affect its function.
Don't like drinking water
One of the main functions of the kidney is to generate urine. When there is too much or too little water in the human body, the kidney regulates the urine volume to maintain the water balance in the body. If you don't drink water for a long time, your urine volume will decrease and the concentration of wastes and toxins in your urine will increase. Clinical common kidney stones, hydronephrosis and so on are closely related to a long time not drinking water. Adequate drinking water can dilute the urine, protect the kidney, and facilitate the full discharge of waste and toxins.
Big fish, big meat, high protein
Protein is an essential nutrient for human body. It mainly exists in eggs, milk, meat, seafood, beans and other foods. Healthy people can completely meet their daily protein needs through a balanced diet. However, if a long-term high protein diet is conducted, the metabolic products such as urea, uric acid, creatinine and other nitrogen-containing substances are discharged from the urine, which will increase the burden on the kidney, and even make the kidney more burdensome The kidney is in a state of "overload" for a long time, so it will damage the function of kidney when eating a lot of high protein food or blindly supplementing high protein nutrition.
95% salt in the diet is metabolized by the kidney. If you eat too much salt, the burden on the kidney will naturally increase. At the same time, too salty diet will lead to increased blood pressure, kidney blood can not maintain normal flow, thus inducing kidney disease. It is suggested that the daily salt intake should be controlled within 6G.
Drink as water
Sugar, phosphate, caffeine and other ingredients in the beverage can promote calcium excretion, and the calcium content in urine will increase accordingly, which is easy to form stones. Sports drinks contain extra electrolytes and salts, and people with kidney disease should be careful of these drinks. It is suggested to drink less drinks and more boiled water to promote the timely excretion of toxins in the body and ensure the health of kidneys.
