- 5 Habits That Damage Your Kidneys
Hey there, amazing listeners! It's your host, Nicolas Atte, and I'm thrilled to bring you another exciting episode of the Little Bits of Stuff podcast. 🎉
In this episode, we dive deep into the topic of kidney health and how our habits can impact the well-being of our kidneys. It's all about helping you take care of your kidneys and live a healthier life. So, without further ado, let's jump right into the three key takeaways from this episode:
1️⃣ Take Care of Your Bladder: We often underestimate the importance of proper bladder care. Holding in urine for extended periods of time can put unnecessary pressure on our kidneys. This pressure can affect their ability to function properly and clear waste from our bodies. So, remember to listen to your body and take those bathroom breaks when needed. Your kidneys will thank you!
2️⃣ Stay Active and Hydrated: If you're working a remote job, it's easy to fall into a sedentary lifestyle. But don't be like Lizzie! Make sure to incorporate exercise into your daily routine and get moving. Going for a 30-minute to 1-hour walk in the evenings can do wonders for your overall health, including your kidneys. And let's not forget the importance of staying hydrated. Water is the best drink for your kidneys, helping to prevent kidney stones and urinary tract infections. So, drink up and make water your go-to beverage!
3️⃣ Say No to Herbal Medications: We've all heard of those popular herbal drinks and mixtures that are trending in Nigeria. However, it's crucial to understand the potential harm they can cause to our kidneys. These herbal medications often lack proper research and regulation, making them risky for our health. It's time to prioritize your kidney's well-being and avoid consuming these mixtures. If you're struggling with addiction, seek help and start cutting down on these harmful substances.
🌟 Special Announcement: Dialysis Drive in Nigeria 🌟
I'm incredibly excited to share a special announcement with you all. Little Bits of Stuff is embarking on a dialysis drive in Nigeria to support individuals with kidney failure who have financial constraints. We want to ensure that everyone who needs dialysis sessions can access them without worrying about the financial burden.
If you or someone you know is in need of financial assistance for dialysis sessions, please send us a direct message (DM) with their story and why you believe they should receive support. We're also inviting anyone who wants to be part of this drive to reach out and find out how they can contribute. Together, we can make a difference and provide much-needed help to those in need.
Thank you all for being the best fans ever and for joining us on this journey to better kidney health. Don't forget to listen to the full episode for more valuable insights and tips. Stay tuned for more exciting episodes coming your way!
Until next time,
Nicolas Atte 🎙️11m | Feb 10, 2024
- Your Kidneys, Your Choice
Your Kidneys, Your Choices
Hello, dear listeners! This is Nicolas Atte, your host for the Little Bits of Stuff podcast. After a long hiatus of over a year, we're back with a crucial series focusing on kidney health and the importance of making informed lifestyle choices.
In this episode, we delve into the significance of kidney function, the detrimental effects of certain habits on our kidneys, and the alarming statistics surrounding kidney failure, particularly in Nigeria. We discuss how excessive alcohol consumption, the use of bleaching products, and traditional herbal concoctions can lead to kidney damage. Additionally, we highlight the silent but deadly impact of diabetes and hypertension on kidney health.
The cost of treating kidney failure through dialysis or transplant is staggering, with many Nigerians unable to afford the necessary care. We emphasize the importance of prevention and early detection of kidney issues to avoid the financial and health burdens of treatment.
In the coming episodes, we'll explore ways to support those in need of dialysis and how we can contribute to raising awareness about kidney health. We encourage you to reflect on the information shared, consider how you can be part of this movement, and reach out to us with your thoughts and willingness to help.
Stay tuned for more insightful discussions on kidney health, and let's work together to make a difference. Remember, your kidneys, your choice—let's protect them.
Connect with us on our social media handles and website to join the conversation and learn how you can help in the fight against kidney failure.
Until next time, take care of your kidneys and yourself.16m | Jan 20, 2024

Sitting for prolonged periods of time increases stress and strain on the back muscles and spinal discs. Spinal discs act like cushioning pads between your vertebral bodies, and pressure on these pads results in pain. Pressure is typically highest when sitting, and lowest when lying down.
