Southwest Kidney INSTI TUTE, PLC PREVENTING KIDNEY DISEASE Kidney disease can often be prevented! And if you already have kidney disease, you can take steps to keep your kidney damage from getting worse. Even small changes can make a big difference. EATING HEALTHY What you eat and drink affects your health. Eating healthy portions of foods that are low in salt and fat help keep you at a healthy weight and a healthy blood pressure. STAYING ACTIVE Being active can help you stay healthy. Set a goal to be active for at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week. Be sure to talk to your doctor before starting any exercise plan. Your doctor can help you learn what exercises are safe for you, how often you should exercise and how long your exercise sessions should last. LIMITING ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO Drinking alcohol in large amounts can make your blood pressure go up, which can lead to kidney disease. By drinking less, you can help keep your blood pressure under control. Do not smoke or use tobacco. WORKING WITH YOUR DOCTOR Communicate well with your doctors, nurses, technicians, dietitians and any other health care professionals to make sure you are getting the best possible care. Source:
