Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

the best way is to drink plenty of water

1-2 liters of water a day

and avoid alcohol and NSAIDs like ibuprofen and naproxen sodium which can tax your kidneys

you should diet and cut out carbohydrates and exercise and loose weight

you can eat vegan diet as well

which can help you loose weight

and this can help reverse some diabetes

which can help your kidneys as well.

are you exercising regularly?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
2 hours, 2-3 times a week. I usually drink Powerade Zero during the day instead of water
Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

yes, keep up exercising

work on loosing weight

cut out calories out of your diet

better to drink water than powderade zero. those have artificial sweeteners which can tax your kidney more.

cut the carbohydrates out of your diet.
