The kidneys are the most underrated least respected organ

Your brain, lungs and heart seem to gain the most respect. After all you can’t live brain or lungs, and you can get an artificial heart. But those organs couldn’t survive if it wasn’t for your faithful bean-shaped twin friend, the Kidneys!💙

This loyal conjoined friend filters 50 gallons of blood a day, supplying it to your heart and brain so they function proper.

Please, for love of your kidneys, drink plenty of water, not too much coffee, limit sugar, and consume wholesome, natural salt. If Diabetic faithfully monitor your gluclose levels and blood pressure do you don’t stress your kidneys.

Kidney failure is unpleasant and affect your entire body from foot amputation, high blood pressure, joint pain (gout), increased risk heart failure, stroke, mental confusion, increase risk of taste, smell and hearing loss, plus going to dialysis for 4 hours a day. If Diabetic, kidney failure greatly increases your risk of complications such amputation since your blood isn’t just plagued with excess gluclose but not waste.

Love your kidneys

    • Added to my response: everybody’s body is affected differently. But drink plenty of water after your morning coffee.

    • More than 2 cups can be excessive, especially if you’re thin.

  • As I’m drinking coffee reading this 😅. That’s true tho. Since you mention kidneys and diabetes, my grandmother lost her kidneys due to a UTI she never felt because of diabetes. But luckily it was caught on before more damage happen. She went on dialysis and it took a huge toll on her mentally, emotionally, and physically. And of course longer your on it worse things will be. She was on it for about 3 years which was longer than doctors expected. Plus she went into it with only 15% of her heart to begin with. She’s had lots of heart failures. It went from her always wanting to shop and doing stuff outdoors to me needing to help her walk at times and needing help to get into my car to go to dialysis all in such a short amount of time. Kidneys are very important.

    On top of 4 hours every other day the surgery of the port and I forgot what the arm one is called. My grandmother was always told her port will get infected easy and the arm one is best option. She went to get the arm one done and they messed up and she couldn’t even use it. It left her arm super inflamed and had that plate type thing inside her arm and couldn’t get it done again. Times she’d get used to other patients in the room then out of nowhere some end up passing away was always super sad. And trying to lean her off drinking anything much was very hard for someone who loves pepsi. And then next thing ya know she has to much fluid on her lungs because she drank to much. There’s just so much that goes into loosing kidneys it’s ridiculous. She was the only one in the facility who was still able to pee even.

    • I just feel bad for the people on dialysis. How do you sit there with all those needles and stay calm in you for 4 hours and stay calm. I couldn’t do it.

        • It’s good she was still able to pee and didn’t a bag or tubes to drain her urine.

          Not that you asked, but I became interested in kidneys after my creatinine levels were higher than usual, but only by .3 points (I was just dehydrated.) Never before thst was I interested in my kidneys or had much knowledge about them.

          • Yeah didn’t realize those on it can be effected that way.

            Hahaha I mean it did cross my mind wondering how’s this person know so much. Well I knew nothing before my grandmother lost hers. Still don’t know that much but learned a lot taking care of her some and the doctor visits I would go to. I’ve never dranken the amount of water I’m supposed to I usually drink maybe half as much. It sometimes makes me wonder if it’s harming me that I don’t keep up enough.

            At least you take the time to look into it and see how important they are. And enough to care for your own and make more positive improvements on your own health.

  • Good post, i would like to add that some of the most commonly used meds, the NSAIDs are nephrotoxic in nature, when used daily over a long period of time. NSAIDs reduce blood flow to the kidneys and can cause kidney damage.

  • What about the liver? The chemical plant of the body. Need an nonessential vitamin for cell maintenance? Boom the liver synthesizes it. Drink poison? No worries the liver will try to break it down to something more benign. Oops you lose 90% of the liver? IT GROWS FREAKING BACK LIKE A MAD LAD!

    • The beautiful is indeed unique in that it has regenerative properties. But I feel like the liver, while still underrated, is given the respect it deserves.
