Ways of Protecting Your Kidneys
In order to ensure the protection and safety of your kiddneys, the following are the ways among many on how to safeguard your kidneys:

1. Always Stay Hydrated. It is advisable you drink up to 3 litres of fluid (water) in a day. This helps in making sure sediments are washed away within your urinary tract. Please, do not hold your urine. Endeavour to urinate when the urge arises.

2. Do Away with Herbal Concussions. Some of these herbal drugs are medicinal, no doubt but their dosages are not sure. The dose you are taking might be toxic to your kidneys.
