Lifestyles of people today are arguably susceptible to various diseases is annoying. Many people overlook the little things because they are busy. One of the important organs of human body to be maintained is the kidney. The kidneys are part of the urinary tract. The main function of this complex organ system that is to remove excess fluid and waste products from blood.

The kidney disease is one sickeness that’s killing most Nigerians today,  just last month, I lost my step mum to this spreading evil, last 3 Sundays, it was my neighbour’s turn… there at Gbagada Where I lost my mum, it was scary sights anytime I vivisited. FFamilies spent fortune trying to keep their love ones who is being threatened by this evil but the truth is, no amount of money spent, the patient won’t still make it. It’s the very rich ones that live above 15 years after SSeveral of dialysis.

The kidneys also function as endocrine glands, which produces hormones essential for the formation of red blood cells, regulate blood pressure, and bone formation. 

To keep your kidneys healthy always, there are some few things you should do.
1. Adjust your diet Choose whole grains, fruits and organic vegetables. Avoid processed foods, limit salt, and replace full-fat meat with fish or white meat(with no fat).
2. Keep Digestion Add the consumption of probiotics, prebiotics, and fiber-rich foods. It is also a good way to reduce the adverse effects of pesticides on food.
3. Stop Smoking The study, published by the American Physiological Society in 2007 concluded that nicotine is a major factor that caused kidney disorders. So also reduced the way you  eat Kolanut.
4. Avoid Alcohol Excessive alcohol consumption can increase blood pressure, one of the problems that can lead to kidney disorders. Also make people urinate frequently so that the risk of dehydration. All those alomo, ogidiga, road side paraga (local herbs), ale, afato, opa eyin et el, are killing you gradually.

5. Drink Lots of Water and Exercise Diligent  Drinking water for at least 6-8 glasses of water a day. Do not be lazy to exercise. Walk 4-5 times a week is enough to help maintain a healthy heart rate, which is also good for your kidneys.

6. Avoid Chemical Food  We’ve been told chemical grown food such as watermelon,  green leaves et el are too hard on our sensitive kidney, these foods are sweet, but killing. Those living in remote villages could be free of the hazard in chemical food aspects,  as they eat fresh food.

Prevention is better than cure, stay healthy.
