In brief: Exercise
Maintain a healthy lifestyle with low fat food, low salt diet.
Avoid excessive weight gain. Stay well hydrated. If you have diabetes or high blood pressure, make sure it is well controlled. Exercise is important to improve all of these factors. And see as doctor regularly. They can do blood tests to check for kidney disease since this is often a silent disease.
