Top Foods for Healthy Kidneys
Do you have problems with your kidneys such as infections or kidney stones? The kidneys are two of the very important organs in the body. They prevent the buildup of wastes and extra fluid in the body and they keep levels of electrolytes stable, such as sodium, potassium, and phosphate. They make hormones that help regulate blood pressure, make red blood cells, and help bones stay strong. Diet and nutrition can play a major role in making sure you have healthy kidneys and if you feel like there is anything wrong with your kidneys then you need to contact a nephrologist like Dr Trung Quach.
Fresh foods are best, so nix foods that are prepared or packaged. A kidney-friendly diet is one in which protein, phosphorus, and sodium levels are limited. While the body needs protein for muscle growth and tissue repair, people with kidney problems often cannot rid their bodies of the waste created when the body uses protein.
Here are some foods to include in your diet that will contribute to good kidney health: red bell pepper, cabbage, cauliflower, garlic, onions, apples, cranberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, red grapes, egg whites, fish high in omega-3’s (wild salmon, herring, mackerel, rainbow trout), and extra virgin olive oil.
Does this list of foods sound familiar? Yes, they are all heart-healthy foods as well. The heart and the kidneys work closely together so it’s no surprise that the same superfoods will help keep them both in tip-top condition.
Having issues with your kidneys? In addition to making good dietary choices, whole food supplements can assist your body in the healing process and many times speed up the process. Advanced Urology also suggests exercising regularly as well as drinking plenty of water is the best way to keep healthy kidneys.
