Kidney diseases are quite common these days: more than 10% of the world’s population is suffering from some kidney-related disease or another. Kidneys help by filtering out waste products from blood and excreting them from the body in the form of urine. High sugar levels and increased blood pressure can result in a disturbance in the function of the organ and may result in kidney failure. 

A kidney-healthy food plan may help the kidneys work normally and prevent kidney disease. There are some meals that are highly beneficial to kidney health and help it function better. 

Here is a list of some food items that should be incorporated into your diet for a healthy lifestyle and to make your kidneys work more efficiently. 

  • Berries 

Blueberries and strawberries are high sources of nutrients and antioxidants. They have great antioxidants, which help combat heart disease and diabetes. In addition to this, they have low amounts of sodium, phosphorus, and potassium, which makes them perfect kidney-beneficial foods. 

  • Egg whites

No doubt egg yolks are very nutritious, but they have high amounts of phosphorus, which is why egg whites are a better choice for people looking to live a healthy lifestyle. Egg whites have kidney-friendly protein, and they are best for people undergoing dialysis as they need a high-protein, low-phosphorus diet. 

  • Garlic

Garlic powder can be used as an alternative to salt because people with kidney disease are restricted from consuming sodium and salts. Moreover, they have significant amounts of vitamin C and magnesium. 

  • Olive oil

Switch your regular cooking oil from vegetable oil to olive oil. Olive oil is phosphorus-free and contains healthy fats, which are excellent for people suffering from kidney problems. It is advisable to use olive oil as it helps in not gaining much weight and leads a healthier life. 

These food options are excellent for people suffering from kidney disease who wish for a healthier way of life. Try drinking more water to remove the toxins and sodium from the kidneys naturally. 

Stay active and include some sort of exercise in your daily routine, but try keeping it simple. You can start with a refreshing morning walk.

Stay healthy and be happy!
