Do you get up a lot at night? Learn more about the kidneys and the first sign of kidney disease.
we’re going to talk about the first sign of kidney disease. The kidneys are filters that convert blood into urine and recycle your fluid, protein, nutrients, and hormones.
Other functions of the kidneys include:
• Coordinating the amount of fluid in the body
• Converting vitamin D into the active form of vitamin D
• Regulating blood pressure
• Regulating the hydration of the body
• Eliminating toxins from the body
High blood sugar levels can lead to diabetic nephropathy, one of the most common causes of kidney failure and end-stage renal disease.
The first sign of kidney disease is nocturia, a situation where you urinate often during the night. Other common signs of kidney disease are protein in the urine and edema.
I have found that the best way to stop nocturia is to focus on improving the person’s diabetes first. A high-carb diet is ultimately behind diabetes.
The best ways to support your kidneys:
1. Go on a keto diet
2. Do intermittent fasting (one and a half meals a day)
3. Consume plant phytonutrients
4. Take benfotiamine
5. Take alpha-lipoic acid
6. Consume turmeric
