Kidneys, as the “purification factory” of the human body, work 24 hours a day to remove waste, excess salt and water from the blood into Urine is excreted, and its important role to us is self-evident.
The key to protecting the kidneys is to get rid of those bad habits that hurt the kidneys in daily life.
Speaking of kidney-damaging behavior, many people think of overindulgence. But to tell the truth, uncontrolled sex life hurts the “kidney” in Chinese medicine, which refers to the foundation of the human body’s internal organs, and is different from the kidney.
Therefore, as far as kidney injury is concerned, you should be more alert to the following behaviors, especially when the weather is hot now, many people are “stepping on thunder”!
Do these 4 things in dog days, Kids damage more than overindulgence< p>1. I don’t drink enough water, I only want to drink water when I’m thirsty
“China Water and Quality of Life Cognition Survey Report” shows that 65.9% people drink water only when they are thirsty, which is a chronic damage to the kidneys.
Actually, when you feel thirsty, your body is already in a state of dehydration.
If the body lacks water, the kidneys will make a “throttling” decision after measuring the body’s pH and osmotic pressure——
Using less water to dispose of waste, coupled with the hot weather and the high concentration of urine, it will lead to the deposition of metabolic waste and toxic substances, which will become worse over time. The more accumulation, it is easy to induce chronic kidney disease and kidney stones.
p>“Dietary Guidelines for Chinese Residents (2016 Edition)” recommends:< span>
In addition to metabolism and food, lightly physically active adults living in mild climates, Drink at least 1500~1700ml of water per day.
It is so hot now that it is easy to dry in an air-conditioned room, and it is easy to dry in an air-conditioned room outside. And often sweat profusely, the body’s demand for water is greater.
So, be sure to increase the amount of water you drink on this basis. Even if you don’t feel thirsty, you should rehydrate from time to time, don’t wait until you’re thirsty to remember.
Actually, seeing urine is the most intuitive way to drink enough water. If the urine is small and dark in color, it means that you are already dehydrated and it is time to drink more water~
As for tea, although it is a relatively healthy drink, it also contains oxalic acid, fluorine and other ingredients. If you drink it as water, it will also increase the burden on the kidneys.
So, boiled water is the safest, healthiest and most suitable for long-term drinking. There is a lot of water to be supplemented in the dog days, and it must be mainly boiled water. Other tea drinks can be used as adjustments~
3. Love supper, barbecue, seafood with beer
Summer is supper , The season for drinking beer and skewers, but I want to remind everyone that it’s okay to indulge once in a while, but you can’t eat like this every time!
Seafood and beer are high purine foods. Excessive intake will accelerate the production of uric acid and increase the burden on the kidneys.
Barbecue is a high-fat and high-salt food. Excessive intake of oil and salt will also overwhelm the kidneys.
In addition, the food will also produce carcinogenic substances such as benzopyrene during the barbecue process. If you eat it regularly, it may increase the risk of cancer.
4. Take medicine when sick
The dog days of summer, heat and humidity, the invasion of external evils, people are prone to illness; in addition, many people are greedy for cold, and they go in and out of air-conditioned rooms every day, alternating between hot and cold. During this time, it is easy to catch a cold, heatstroke, and a lot of people who get the flu if they are not careful.
These are not serious illnesses, but because of this, many people buy some medicines and eat them based on their own experience.
But you should know that many over-the-counter drugs also have certain renal toxicity. If the usage and dosage are improper, it may cause renal insufficiency or acute renal failure. .
According to statistics, about 1/4 of acute renal failure cases are caused by drugs.
There is a case: In 2018, a 27-year-old graduate student suffered from multiple organs after taking several kinds of cold medicines. exhaustion, and eventually died of failure to rescue.
So remind everyone not to buy medicines when you are sick, If you take medicine indiscriminately, must follow the doctor’s advice and take the medicine according to the instructions.
