Staying active is an important part of your kidney care and overall wellbeing. Even simple exercises can have a positive effect on your body and mind.
Why should kidney disease patients exercise?
Exercising may seem counterintuitive for patients with kidney disease when you frequently feel tired. Getting enough rest is important, but adding exercise to your care regimen may help the condition of your kidneys and actually increase your energy levels.
Finding an exercise routine that works for you can also help you sleep better, gain control of your weight and blood pressure, improve your mood, and increase your strength.
