How To Prevent Kidney Failure?
Good evening, I want to ask the doctor, how would the promotion of kidney failure work?
Good evening Andi Zulfha, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Kidney failure is a condition that is called if there has been a failure / damage to the function of the kidney organ where this organ cannot work as it should. Kidney failure itself in the medical world is divided into 2 major groups, namely acute kidney failure and chronic kidney failure.
Acute kidney failure is a term used when kidney damage / failure occurs suddenly. The cause of this condition itself is quite a lot, it can be caused by conditions outside the kidney or indeed due to damage to the kidney structure itself. Some of the causes that often cause this condition are:
Lack of body fluids (for example due to severe dehydration, excessive bleeding)
Toxins from outside the body (eg contrast fluid for radiological examination, certain antibiotics)
Toxins from the body (eg excessive breakdown of red blood cells, damage to muscle cells)
Blockage of the kidney or other urinary tract
While chronic kidney failure or chronic kidney disease is a condition in which kidney function declines gradually until eventually the kidneys can no longer work as they should. The cause of this condition itself is quite different from the cause of acute failure, where the most frequent causes of this condition are:
Kidney damage as a complication of diabetes (diabetes)
Kidney damage as a complication of high blood pressure
Kidney damage due to autoimmune diseases
Congenital kidney disorders
After looking at the causes that can cause kidney failure, in principle, the best prevention is to prevent the emergence of these causes, by early doing:
Consumption of drinking water (water) of at least 2 liters per day or more, especially when you are in a condition that occurs a lot of body fluids (eg exercise, diarrhea, vomiting)
Avoid the habit of holding BAK
Doing exercise regularly (3-4x per week)
Avoid the use of drugs that are toxic to the kidneys without clear instructions from the doctor
Avoid the use of alcohol, especially in excessive amounts
Live a healthy diet such as arranging a schedule, the amount and type of food so as not to have diabetes and also high blood pressure
Avoid excessive stress
I hope this helps.
