May is National Fitness Month. We understand that with some conditions you may not feel like exercising or that you might not think that it has much affect. Think again. Exercise is hardly ever a bad idea no matter what your condition.
Exercise, like other healthy habits such as a balanced diet, will boost your overall health. It will help you not gain weight and keep your blood pressure in check. Exercising can also help you deal better with stress. Doing something that is good for your overall health is definitely going to be good for your bladder and kidneys.
If you have avoided exercise or physical activity in general because of leakage issues, then it’s time to stop. Exercise can actually help with bladder control. Get the right products to help you start an exercise program, but don’t be afraid to get moving.
Aerobic activity such as walking, biking or swimming, is actually the best form of exercise to help your kidneys. Aerobics can help prevent type 2 diabetes, which is the number one cause of kidney failure.
Regular exercisers are proven to have lower levels of creatinine, which is a chemical waste product in the blood. Also, their kidneys were better able to clear creatinine from the bloodstream. In essence, aerobic exercising can lead to better performing kidneys. Of course, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing, so a good, healthy amount of exercise is 30 – 60 minutes per day.
