1. Insufficient Water Intake: Severe and frequent dehydration can lead to permanent kidney damage. It is very important to drink enough water, especially in hot and humid weather. [1]

2. High Sugar Consumption: High sugar levels causes the narrowing of blood vessels and blockage or clogging of vessels that results in damage to kidneys.

3. Urinary Retention: Not emptying the bladder early causes urine to flow backward into the kidneys. This backward flow can damage the kidneys.

4. Too Much Salt: A high salt intake in the diet alters the sodium balance, resulting in reduced function of the kidneys.

5. Animal Protein: Eating red meat accelerates kidney damage. People who consumed red meat have 40% more chances of developing end-stage kidney disease. [2]

6. Not Eating Enough: If you don’t eat enough, your body uses muscle protein as an energy source. This weakness can cause damage to the kidneys.

7. Painkillers: Prolonged use of NSAIDs (pain relievers) can damage the kidneys especially taking them when you are dehydrated or during low blood pressure.

8. Contrast Dyes: Exposure to contrast dyes during radiology can cause a rare kidney disorder known as contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN).

9. Too Much Alcohol: High consumption of alcohol can lead to disruption in normal kidney function and make them less able to filter blood. Alcohol affects the ability of kidneys to regulate electrolyte balance in the body. [3]

10. Lack Of Rest: Resting helps the body to recover and alleviates stress. Lack of rest can lead to changes in blood pressure which impacts kidney functions.

11. Smoking: Smoking slows down the blood flow to different organs including kidneys that damages the kidneys.
