Absorption analgesics, long-term or large-dose anti-inflammatory analgesics, such as Qutong tablets, indomethacin, paracetamol, aspirin, etc., can easily cause kidney damage.


Some of the Chinese herbs that have been clinically found to be “harmful to the kidney” when taken in excess are: Tripterygium wilfordii, Guan Mutong, morning glory, cocklebur, poppy husks, sagebrush, sage gentleman, green wood fragrant, etc.

Among them, the kidney damage caused by Tripterygium wilfordii was the largest, followed by Guan Mutong.


Overeating, modern people have an increased chance of eating together, and they often eat too much “deliciousness”. Most of these wastes are excreted through the meal. An unduly elevated diet will increase the burden on the kidneys.

Once this kind of infection recurs, it can cause chronic infection and is not easy to cure.


Too little water If you do not drink water for a long time, your urine output will decrease and the concentration of waste and toxins in your urine will increase.

Drinking strong tea after drinking Some people think that drinking strong tea after drinking can hang out. In fact, this is not only ineffective, it will hurt the kidneys.

Experts said that theophylline in tea can quickly affect the kidneys and exert diuretic effects. At this time, alcohol is excreted from the kidneys before it has time to decompose, causing the kidneys to be stimulated by a large amount of ethanol, thereby damaging kidney function.


The diet is too salty. The diet is too salty, which causes blood pressure to rise, and kidney blood cannot maintain normal flow, which can cause kidney disease.
