(HealthDay News) -- Keeping your kidneys healthy is extremely important, particularly if you have a chronic disease such as diabetes.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests how to protect the kidneys:

  • Maintain healthy blood pressure and cholesterol.
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables, and cut back on foods high in salt.
  • Get plenty of regular physical activity.
  • If you take any medications, do so as the label and your doctor prescribe.
  • Keep diabetes in check by maintaining target blood glucose and getting regular A1c checks at least twice annually.
