Week 4 KCA Tip: Limit Alcohol and Say NO TO TOBACCO

Week4_KCA

Guys it is time for week 4 tip but do not forget the week 1, week 2 and week 3 tips 🙂 Drink plenty of water, be physically active and maintain a healthy weight, take a diet low in sodium and fat. Also this tip I am sure would be of relief to all my friends since it does not ask you to say NO to drinking but just to limit it 🙂

Limit alcohol
Drinking alcohol in large amounts can cause your blood pressure to rise. Limiting how much alcohol you drink can help you keep a healthy blood pressure. Have no more than two drinks per day if you’re a man and no more than one drink per day if you’re a woman.

Avoid tobacco
Using tobacco (smoking or chewing) puts you more at risk for high blood pressure, kidney disease and many other health problems. If you already have kidney disease, using tobacco can make it get worse faster.

If you use tobacco, quitting can help lower your chances of getting kidney disease or help slow the disease down if you already have it.
