    Should Patients with CKD Increase Their Fluid Intake

    Should Patients with CKD Increase Their Fluid IntakeCKD is a progressive disease, which means patient’s kidney function will be damaged gradually. For patients with CKD, there are many aspects should be paid attention by them, because kidney damage can cause many health problems.

    A major function of kidney is to keep the balance of fluid in our body, and when patient’s kidney function is damaged by CKD, his fluid balance may also be broken, and patients may need to regulate his water intake to protect his body health. As we know, water is very important for our body heath. Well then, should patients with CKD increase their fluid intake?

    How does kidney regulate fluid balance?

    Kidney is a filter of our body, which can filtrate out the metabolic wastes from our body. As we know, the major function of kidney is to produce urine, and the excess fluid in our body will be removed out in this process. In fact, kidney tubule has the function of reabsorption, and when our body has water shortage, it will reabsorb the filtered fluid by glomeruli.

    As a result, the balance of fluid in our body can be guaranteed by the function of filtration and reabsorption.

    Should patients with CKD increase their fluid intake?

    Water is very important for our body health, but whether patients should increase their water is determined by their own conditions.

    Normally, increasing patient’s water intake appropriately is very beneficial for removing out the metabolic wastes from patient’s body. But patients can not increase their water intake blindly, because increasing waster intake blindly can also aggravate patient’s condition. For example, patients with CKD often have edema, and patients will need to have fluid restriction when they have obvious edema. Besides, when patients have kidney failure, they will have the problem of less urine, which is caused by low kidney function, and patients should also have fluid restriction at this point.]

    Thereby, there are many aspects should be considered by patients with CKD in their fluid intake and diet, and patients should regulate their diet according to their own conditions.
