Kidney | Keep Your Kidneys Healthy
Maintaining the health of your kidneys start with a yearly screening for microalbunmin. This a very specific test that look for small amounts of protein in the urine that cannot be detected by the usual "dipstick" test done during a routine urinalysis. It is, however, important to know that an infection, severe stress, heart, failure, or strenuous exercise before a screening test can also cause increase levels of protein in your urine. You should have a positive screening test confirmed with a full 24-hour microalbumin test If the second test is positive you should then be started treatment that will return this number of normal.
If you have had kidney stones recently it would be best to concentrate your healing efforts on the detoxifying and tonifying of your kidneys. The best method for this is to drink plenty of water. Increasing fluid intake in general, reduces the amount of minerals that can build up in your kidneys that form stones, or gravel. Plus the fluids will push through any toxins that may stagnate in the kidneys; essentially helping in the process of detoxification.
If you recently had a kidney infection, you may already be on a series of antibiotics, and I would recommend including acidophilus bacterium in your diet. The medicine you are on unfortunately has the side effect of killing all the good bacteria in your system as well as the one that caused your infection. A good food source of acidophilus is yogurt; ideally with added cultures. Just be sure it is not too sugary though, as this can work against the benefits. google_ad_channel = "7940249670, " + AB_cat_channel + AB_unit_channel; google_language = "en"; google_ad_region = 'test';
