In the current hustle culture, we have put our health on the back burner while our professional commitments are getting priority in our life.

Make sure to reduce use of painkillers for different ailments. Over dependency on painkillers or frequent consumption of such pills will harm your kidneys. Pain killers may alleviate your aches and pains, but don’t take it without consulting a doctor.
High salt intake
High salt intake can increase your blood pressure which can result in harming your kidneys. Avoid salty foods like chips and fries.
