4 Things You Do Daily That Can Harm Your Kidney And Heart WeTalkMediaOct

The kidneys improve the body's chemical equilibrium (including salt, potassium, and calcium) by removing wastewater from the circulation (in the form of urine). The kidneys also produce hormones that aid in blood pressure management and encourage red blood cell production in the bone marrow.

The coronary heart is a vital organ in your body. It's a muscle responsible for pumping blood throughout your body. The oxygen and vitamins in your heart's pumped blood are critical to your health. As big as a clenched fist, your coronary heart is between 300 and 450 grams. By writing this modern essay, I hope to educate the general people about 5 bad habits that can harm their renal and cardiovascular systems.

Here are five things you do on a daily basis that are bad for your kidneys and heart.

Sitting for a longer period of time

Sitting for long periods has been linked to heart disease. Males who watch more than 23 hours of television per week are 64% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than males who only watch 11 hours of television per week, according to one study.

According to research, those who sit for long periods of time each day are at greater risk of developing diabetes, having a heart attack, or even developing some types of cancer. According to recent research, sitting for lengthy periods of time increases the risk of developing a chronic kidney disease, particularly in women.


An increase in coronary heart charge and blood pressure might occur briefly when alcohol is consumed. Chronic overconsumption can lead to increased coronary heart charges, high blood pressure and weaker coronary heart muscle, as well as irregular heartbeat.

Alcohol alters the kidney's element and reduces the organ's ability to remove waste products from the blood. Alcohol also has an effect on the body's ability to regulate fluid and electrolyte levels. Dehydration (drying out) caused by alcohol can alter normal cell and organ characteristics, including kidney function.


Excess sugar levels in the blood can cause the arteries to narrow and constrict over time. With insufficient blood, kidneys break down and albumin (a protein) flows through the filters, ending up in urine where it shouldn't be.

By raising your risk for type 2 diabetes, sugar can have an influence on your heart and raise your vulnerability to coronary heart disease and stroke. Steady increases in insulin levels (and thus blood sugar levels) raise your risk of weight gain and coronary heart disease.


Smoking increases heart rate, tightens important arteries, and may induce an irregular cardiac rhythm, all of which make your heart work harder. Research has confirmed this. Smoking adds to the blood strain, raising the risk of a stroke.

Kidney disease is primarily caused by unmanaged or poorly controlled high blood pressure.. Smoking reduces blood supply to vital organs such as the kidneys, potentially exacerbating the condition.
