10 Common Habits That Can Damage Your Kidneys

9. Holding your pee

Not emptying your bladder on time is one of the main causes of kidney problems. If you often resist the urge to pee, the urine remains in your bladder for a longer period, and bacteria begin multiplying much faster. Eventually, this can lead to serious consequences like kidney infections and urinary incontinence

8. Overtraining

Working out too hard for too long can cause rhabdomyolysis, a condition when your muscles get injured and the content of the dead fibers flows right into your bloodstream. This can lead to serious health complications including kidney failure.

So if you have significantly increased your training and you have both muscle pain and dark-colored urine, you should see your doctor as soon as possible.
