7 Tips for Maintaining Healthy Kidneys

2. Eat a Kidney-Friendly Diet

The National Kidney Foundation suggests being wary of the kinds of foods you’re putting into your body (which, again, is a healthy habit to get into for your overall health). The foundation said a kidney and heart-healthy diet consists of less sodium, an ample supply of fruits and vegetables, and Omega-3 rich foods like salmon.

The source also notes you should try to reduce the amount of processed foods you’re eating (which can be easier said than done), as well as knocking down intake of saturated fats found in foods such as eggs, whole milk, cheese and fried foods.
