Once the kidneys get damaged, it becomes a challenge to control the progress of the disease. With certain precautionary measures, the onset of CKD can be prevented or delayed.

  • Diet control: Follow a low salt, low-fat diet
  • Regular exercise: Include at least 30 minutes of exercise in your daily schedule; even a brisk walk is good.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink adequate water to keep cleansing the kidneys
  • Eat fresh: Avoid packaged food or items with preservatives
  • Sleep well: Get enough sleep and rest
  • Avoid self-medication: Over the counter drugs and painkillers must be avoided as they can harm the kidneys as a side effect. Always consult a doctor before taking medicines.
  • Limit alcohol/tobacco intake: Excessive drinking and smoking can result in dire effects on kidneys
  • Get a regular health check-up done
