Kidney health is closely related with healthy eating habits. Poor diet and unhealthy eating habits can have a negative impact on our kidneys. Avoid consuming refined and processed foods, choose healthy options like fresh vegetables and fruits. Foods rich in antioxidants not only protect you against diseases like cancer but also promote kidney health.
Increasing your intake of potassium and limiting your consumption of alcohol can result in healthy kidneys.
