KIDNEY HEALTH

You are more likely to develop kidney disease if you have:

  • Diabetes

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart disease

  • A family history of kidney failure

What can I do to keep my kidneys healthy?

You can protect your kidneys by preventing or managing health conditions that cause kidney damage, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Manage diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease, the best way to protect your kidneys from damage is to:

Keep blood glucose numbers close to your goal. Checking your blood glucose, or blood sugar level is an important way to manage your diabetes. Your health care team may want you to test your blood glucose one or more times a day.

Keep your blood pressure numbers close to your goal. The blood pressure goal for most people with diabetes is below 140/90 mm Hg.

Take all your medicines as prescribed. To control your condition, your doctor may prescribe medication to control your symptoms and protect your kidney.

Be careful about the daily use of over-the-counter pain medications. Regular use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen  and naproxen can damage your kidneys.
