Bad Habits that Leads to Kidney Failure in Both Men and Women

According to Healthline - There are several habits that can contribute to kidney failure, including:

Smoking: Smoking is a known risk factor for kidney disease. It can damage the blood vessels in your kidneys, reducing their ability to function properly.

Overuse of painkillers: Taking too many painkillers, particularly nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can damage your kidneys over time. If you have chronic pain, talk to your doctor about other ways to manage it.

Not drinking enough water: Not drinking enough water can lead to dehydration, which can harm your kidneys. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids, especially water, to keep your kidneys healthy.

Eating a high-salt diet: Consuming too much salt can raise your blood pressure, which can damage your kidneys over time. Try to limit your salt intake to no more than 2,300 milligrams per day.

Consuming too much alcohol: Drinking too much alcohol can cause your kidneys to work harder than they should, leading to kidney damage over time. Try to limit your alcohol intake to no more than one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men.

Eating an unhealthy diet: Consuming a diet high in saturated and trans fats, processed foods, and sugar can increase your risk of kidney disease. Instead, eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Not getting enough exercise: Regular exercise can help keep your kidneys healthy by improving your overall health and reducing your risk of high blood pressure and diabetes, two common causes of kidney disease.
