Exercises for kidney patients
It is a very safe form of exercise and suitable for almost everyone. It can be done anywhere and at any time. For people who do not exercise at all, start with a short, easy, five-minute walk – very slow, very calm, continue it for a week if there are no after-effects. Then increase it to 10 minutes. Watch the body and look for any signs of stress or discomfort. If everything is all right, then slowly increase the duration of the walk.
2. Yoga and flexibility exercises:
Asanas help the body to flex and breathing exercises can be performed on an everyday basis. Meditation and yoga help to keep the mind free of stress and tensions. Sit-ups, squats, calf raises, dips, pull-ups, etc. can easily be performed by individuals who are dialysis.
3. Freestyle dance:
Play and groove to favourite music or watch online for some light dance moves.
It is an excellent form of exercise for everyone. Since the pressure on the joints is low in the water, this is an excellent way to exercise the body without exposing the joints to additional stress that is possible while walking.
A healthy balanced diet with exercise will not only keep weight under check but also balances all the blood parameters thereby increasing longevity and making you feel healthy.
