When you sit for long, the kidneys get worse.
There are a number of studies that show that long sitting habits can lead to diabetes, obesity, and shortened life expectancy. However, there is a research result that the long-lived lifestyle also deteriorates kidney health. Researchers from the University of Leicester in England conducted research on 5600 adults aged 40 to 75 years. The researchers found that the time they spent sitting and going and the amount of time they spend on exercise, the longer the time spent sitting and going, the higher the incidence of chronic kidney disease.
Chronic kidney disease is a disease in which the function of filtering impurities of the blood is lowered. Hypertension and diabetes are the main symptoms of chronic kidney disease. The researchers found that reducing the time spent sitting and going for a day lowers the incidence of chronic kidney disease, with differences between men and women. By reducing the amount of time spent sitting on a day from an average of 8 hours to 3 hours, the incidence of chronic kidney disease in women decreased by more than 30 percent. Men, on the other hand, were less effective and only 15% lower. However, men were able to offset this by active physical activity compared to women. "Men have a moderate intensity of physical activity, such as walking, jogging, and treadmill running, which is good for kidney health, and women can be said to be effective just by reducing sitting time," the researchers said.
