Excessive fasting can dam@ge kidney — NAFDAC warns Nigerians

The National Agency for Food and Dr¥g Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has warned Nigerians against excessive fasting, saying it affects the kidney.

Speaking at an event in Abuja on Monday, January 23, the Director-general of NAFDAC, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, attributed the high rate of kidney problems in Nigeria to prolonged fasting by some religious adherents.

According to her, “We are a very religious country, Muslims and Christians, we fast a lot, and it is part of the kidney problem.

Your body has to have homeomistatic balance, meaning that the water level in your body must be enough to make your organs to function.

Some people will fast for 10 or 20 days and drink only little water, the kidney is being p¥nished. Now, if you put chemicals in it, it triples in exponential manner, it dam@ges the kidney because the kidney doesn’t have water to dilute and filter.

I fast but with common sense. We have to fast with common sense, otherwise we will pay with our kidneys.”
