Eating Too much Salt! | Kidney Health Compromised

Eating a high sodium (salt) diet spikes your blood pressure which may harm your kidneys irrevocably. Due to high intake of salt, kidneys cannot remove extra fluids and toxins from your body. High sodium diet increases blood pressure which can damage your heart, brain and kidneys. So eating a low sodium diet is not just beneficial for your heart and brain but also your kidneys. Low sodium diet can also reduce the risk of kidney stone disease. Here is a guide to how much salt you should include in your diet every day.

For more guidance about low sodium diet please visit our Nutrition Clinic for a complete diet plan.
