Hello User,

There are various reasons because of which vital organs like kidneys in our body get damaged. Uncontrolled high blood sugar levels and high blood pressure are the most common causes for kidney diseases. Hypothyroidism is a health condition which results in hormonal disbalance and results in other health conditions. You suffer from both hypothyroidism and BP. Hence, it is important to work on the root cause.

When the kidneys aren't working properly  waste builds up in the blood including waste products from the food. Therefore it's necessary for people with kidney disease to follow a correct diet.

What to eat

  • Eat only plant based natural foods in your diet.
  • Lower your salt intake to maintain BP and use rock salt in foods.
  • Include cauliflower in your diet. It is a source of many nutrients including Vitamin C, vitamin K, and the B vitamin folate. It is also full of anti inflammatory compounds.
  • Have blueberries. They are filled with nutrients and are one of the best antioxidants. 
  • Avoid sodium for which avoid say no to added salt and replace table salt with rock salt for cooking.
  • Drink coconut water daily.
  • Have almond milk.
  • Include sprouts and salads in your diet.
  • Have overnight soaked raisins and almonds. 

Foods to avoid

  • Avoid tea, coffee and other caffeinated drinks. 
  • Say no to carbonated drinks. 
  • Avoid dairy products and animal products. 
  • Say no to processed foods and packaged foods. 

Yoga

Yoga is very essential as it helps in the proper functioning of the body and aids healing process in the body.

  • Practice suryanamaskar daily. 
  • Do pranayam regularly for atleast 15-20min, specially anulom-vilom and bhastrika pranayam. 
  • Take early morning sunrays daily. 

Thank you

Hello User,

To help you first looking at the status of the illness contacting our forum for an individual consultation will be helpful until then you can follow these guidelines and understand your disease better.

Anything in excess can be harmful to the body, but our kidneys have this excellent function of flushing out whatever is in excess and make our body work in harmony. The problem begins when our kidney itself starts getting hampered with the collected toxins and the treatment needs to be started. The potassium-sodium level needs to be balanced in a way that it still can be protected, so the first thing is to avoid certain food items that are of high fats and spice.

As your diseases are multidimensional choosing a holistic lifestyle will help you more.
