Your kidneys are about the size of your fist but they do important work. They help keep you healthy by maintaining just the right balance of water and other substances, like sodium and potassium, inside your body.
Unfortunately, if your kidneys start to malfunction, you might not realize it for a long while. Kidney disease usually doesn’t make you feel sick until the kidney damage is far along.
It is very important that you control your blood pressure. A healthy lifestyle, including physical activity and a heart-healthy diet, can help control your blood pressure and also slow kidney disease.
If you have diabetes, it is also important to keep your blood sugar under control.
It is recommended eating less sodium and more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. To reduce fats, choose lean meats and low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Our Kidney Cleanse Kit promotes normal kidney function.
Be wise. Be Healthy.
