CKD, abbreviation of Chronic Kidney Disease, which means your kidneys are not functioning well as normal. However, good news is that there exist many effective measures to help yourself with this disorder.

1. Do regular check-ups

To monitor how your kidneys are working, it is necessary to do some regular check-ups, such as, blood test, urine test, kidney function test and so on.

2. Lower blood pressure

If you are suffering from high blood pressure, it is very important to bring your BP under control. Generally, drugs like ACE Inhibitors, ARBs, etc will be used, as they can help stop kidney damage from getting worse. Meanwhile, the target value should be controlled within 130/80mm Hg or blow.

3. Control your blood sugar level

If you have diabetes, both early and effective treatments should be sought to lower blood sugar level. In addition to ceratin medications, exercises like walking, Tai Chi, bicycling or mountain-climbing can also help control blood sugar level.

4. Eating healthy

To slow down the progression of CKD, lower the workload of the injured kidneys and relieve some of the discomforts, it is very important to develop a habit of eating healthy.
