1) Alcohol Abuse- Alcohol consumption can affect many parts of your body including your kidneys.One or two drinks are fine but more than two drinks per day can increase your Blood pressure, affect your liver and add to the work of kidneys.

Six habits that are bad for your Kidneys!

2) Holding In Urine- Withholding urine in bladder can result in extensive kidney damage. A normal bladder can store about 2 cups of urine. Urge to pass Urine is actually a pretty complex process involving many muscles, organs, and nerves that work together to tell you that itโ€™s time to go.Holding it may cause kidney stones,cystitis, bladder swelling and kidney failures at worst. So don't hold it if it isn't really important

3) Dehydration- Water is essential for the kidneys to function. Drinking too little water on daily basis will obstruct kidneys' performance disabling them to flush all wastes and toxins out of your body.The leading cause of kidney stones is a lack of water; they are commonly reported in people who do not drink the recommended daily amount of water.Drink enough water everyday.

4) High Salt Intake- Eating salt raises the amount of sodium in your bloodstream and disturbs the balance, reducing the ability of your kidneys to remove the water.Hence, Sodium can easily trigger various kidney problems.Sodium is a rigorous kidney enemy

5) Overconsumption Of Coffee- Are you a coffee lover? Your day doesn't start without it?Well you need to reduce your coffee intake. Kidneys are very prone to stress, mainly caused due to caffeine.Caffeine is a stimulant, it can stimulate blood flow, increasing blood pressure and hence increases stress on kidneys.It can also contribute in forming kidney stones by increasing calcium excretion in urine.
Say No to "Too much coffee"

6) Lack Of Sleep-Improper sleeping habits can affect your kidney adversely disabling from flushing all wastes and toxins away from your body. According to a research, A link between reduced sleep and diminished kidney function might be the result of medical conditions that affect kidney function, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Have a nice sleep!

So, Good luck everyone.

Take care!

See you again๐Ÿ˜Š

    It was the last 10 minutes of class and this kid needed to go to the bathroom. In my school you can't go to the bathroom at the last 10 minutes of class. He had to go badly and he said he couldn't hold it in, and he ended up peeing himself. :/

  • Nice take, but holding your pee in won't cause kidney damage. It will when you block a ureter and urine production continues which causes kidney damage. It is called Hydronephrosis. People who hold in their urine for inappropriate amounts of time are actually prone to bladder damage, because the internal sphincter may seize again when you have to pee. This will result in an inability to pee and can cause one's bladder to rupture.
